The Choir of Royal Holloway directed by Rupert Gough 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 50-plus concerts a year with a particular specialism in music from the late renaissance and contemporary music, especially from the Baltic states. The mixed choir now comprises 24 Choral Scholars who are generously funded as a part of the Santander Universities Scheme. The choir has toured both east and west coasts of the USA, most European countries, appeared in Beijing and been broadcast on regional and national radio and television all over the world. The choir has been fortunate to sing at a number of high-profile events including the 2014 Festival of Remembrance at the Albert Hall (live on BBC TV), an awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace and performing a new John Rutter commission for the Magna Carta 800th anniversary in front of HM The Queen, the Prime Minister and Archbishop of Canterbury in 2015. During 2016 the choir toured the USA and Canada including performances in the cathedrals of Toronto and Chicago, Cornell University and Grace Church, New York City. BBC Radio 3 have produced live broadcasts of both services and concerts, and they have recently been featured on BBC TVs Songs of Praise with Alexander Armstrong.
