Description:
The Choir of King's College, Cambridge is one of today's most accomplished and renowned representatives of the great British choral tradition. It was created by King Henry VI, who founded King's College, Cambridge in 1441, to provide daily singing in his Chapel, which remains the main task of the choir to this day.

Today the choir is directed by Stephen Cleobury and derives much of its fame from the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, broadcast worldwide to millions on Christmas Eve every year, and the TV service Carols from King's which accompanies it.

Membership of the Choir

The statutes of the College provide for sixteen choristers. These are boys who are educated at King's College School. From the beginning of the 20th Century fourteen Undergraduates have also sung in the choir as Choral Scholars.

Former members of the Choir (including Directors of Music and Organ Scholars) are able to join the King's College Choir Association.

Directors of Music

The Choir is conducted by the Director of Music, a Fellow of the College.
