The Choir of Royal Holloway @ St. James Cathedral

The Choir of Royal Holloway is considered to be one of the finest mixed-voice collegiate choirs in Britain. Their recordings on the Hyperion label have attracted top reviews from all major music publications. Equally at home on the concert platform, the choir gives around 50 concerts a year with a particular specialism in music from the late renaissance and contemporary music, especially from the Baltic States. The choir also benefits from a unique training programme in collaboration with The King's Singers - Royal Holloway's Ensemble in Residence.  St. James Cathedral proudly presents this London-based choir in concert.
