Somerville Chapel Choir

The Choir of Somerville College is one of the finest mixed-voice choirs in Oxford. It is led by the Director of Chapel Music Benjamin Goodson  with the assistance of the Organ Scholars, and plays a central role in College life.

The Choir sings in the college chapel every Sunday during term, gives regular concerts organised by Somerville Music Society, makes recordings, and tours. Recent recordings have included Duruflé Requiem with internationally acclaimed soloists and a disc for Advent. Tours have been to Italy and the USA. In Hilary Term 2016 the choir will perform Bach’s John Passion with professional Baroque orchestra.

The Choir’s membership comprises Choral Exhibitioners and other auditioned singers from the University community. Singers interested in joining the Choir should contact the Director of College Music to arrange an audition.
