Downing College Chapel Choir

The Downing Chapel Choir is an auditioned choir formed of 20-25 singers; it rehearses weekly on Thursdays and before any service. Choral Evensong takes place in Downing College Chapel on every Sunday evening during Full Term, providing the main focus for the work of the Choir. The service is followed by Formal Hall, a candlelit dinner at which the Choir and the Chaplain eat together along with other undergraduates- this serves as a great social time for the choir. The Choir sings the College Grace at the start of the dinner. The Choir also sings the late evening service of Compline on two Thursdays each term at 10 pm. The Choir is involved in other events during the year which are significant occasions in the life of the whole College. The two most popular services are the Advent Carol Service and the Commemoration of Benefactors. Finally, the Choir always embarks on an annual international tour at the start of July; recent destinations have included Canada, Hungary and Scandinavia. You can find out more about the choir by emailing the organ scholar, Dominic Remedios (djr81), or finding the Choir’s Facebook page; enthusiastic singers are encouraged to get in contact to arrange an audition.
