The choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge

Jul. 22, 2017

The Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, is one of the leading University choirs in the UK, with an impressive reputation built on an exciting catalogue of CD recordings. The choir performs in many of the major concert halls and churches in the UK and across the world, and regularly tours in Europe, North & South America and Asia. Last year the choir had an extensive tour of the USA and this year the choir has already toured in Spain, performing on national radio. The choir’s concert repertoire mixes the finest music from the English choral tradition with varied music both sacred and secular from across the ages, and its recent CDs have included modern music from Brazil and medieval music from the Celtic world. The choir consists of students studying at the University of Cambridge, and sings regular services in Caius College chapel during the University Terms. Amongst the College’s Fellows is Professor Stephen Hawking, and the choir recently sang a piece to him that was specially composed to mark his 75th birthday.

劍橋岡維爾與凱斯學院合唱團是英國出色的大學合唱團之一,他們的唱片錄音尤特別令人印象深刻。合唱團曾在英國和世界各地許多音樂廳和教堂中表演,亦定期在歐洲、北美和南美及亞洲巡迴演出。合唱團去年在美國巡迴演出,今年亦已經到西班牙在國家電台演出。合唱團的選曲包括來自傳統英國合唱音樂、各時代的聖樂和神曲,最近的唱片包括來自巴西的現代音樂和塞爾特的中世紀音樂。合唱團由劍橋大學學生組成,在學期間為凱斯學院的小教堂定期獻詩。霍金教授也是該學院的學員之一,合唱團最近為他獻唱了一首專門為慶祝他75歲壽辰的作品。
