O Magnum Mysterium

The Choir of Queens' College Cambridge, director Silas Wollston celebrates the release of its CD.

Thursday 6 December sees the choir of Queens' College Cambridge performing under their director Silas Wollston at the Dutch Church in the City of London. They will be celebrating the release of their CD And comes the Day on the Orchid Classics label. The concert includes an eclectic mix of music for Christmas and Advent, including Bob Chilcott's Advent Antiphons and carols by Britten, Howells and Wollston. There is also the opportunity for the audience to compare and contrast, with settings of O Magnum Mysterium by Gabrieli, Poulenc and Morten Lauridsen. The concert is being repeated on 7 December at Queens' College Chapel, Cambridge, and on Sunday 9 December at L'eglise de la Madeleine, Paris.

The choir is a mixed voice choir of 24 singers, the majority being undergraduate members of Queens' College, Cambridge. There are also two organ scholars. All of this overseen by Director of Music, Silas Wollston. The choir sings services three times a week during term-time with a varied repertoire that has an emphasis on 20th century and contemporary music.
