One of the UK's leading collegiate choirs performs Michael Haydn’s Missa Sancti Hieronymi and Britten’s Hymn to St Cecilia, with organ music by J S Bach.

The Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, is one of the UK's leading collegiate choirs. The 24 singers and two organ scholars, under the direction of renowned organist and composer Matthew Martin perform a wide range of sacred and secular choral music spanning the centuries.

The Choir sings regular Chapel services during the University term and has a busy schedule of additional activities including concerts, recordings, BBC broadcasts and tours.

The Choir’s concert in Orford will showcase the renowned, pellucid acoustics of St Bartholomew’s Church, and feature the magnificent Peter Collins organ – one of East Anglia’s most important instruments.
