Combined Choir Sings Evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral
For the Combined Choir, the beginning of Easter Term proved very exciting. On Monday 20th April, the Choir was welcomed to St Paul’s Cathedral. Here, they sang Evensong with music including the Mathias Jesus Service and Stanford’s Ye Choirs of New Jerusalem. Whilst singing in the fantastic acoustic was challenging, the experience was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Choir to release new CD: Out of Darkness - Music from Lent to Trinity
The Choir is thrilled to announce that our latest CD from Signum Classics, Out of Darkness: Music from Lent to Trinity, will be released on the 9th February 2015.
The Combined Choirs went ahead with this recording at the end of June, following the news that our late Dean and Chaplain, John Hughes, was tragically killed in a car accident. The recording of this CD brought the Choir together in a time of great sadness and is dedicated to John's memory.

Choir participates in John Hughes Arts Festival
The inaugural John Hughes Arts Festival came to Jesus College for the weekend of 23rd-25th January. Over the course of the three days, the Festival celebrated the artistic community at the College by hosting various events, in which the Chapel played a central role. Both choirs were able to participate in the Festival through services of Evensong and Eucharist. The occasion was particularly special because it marked the first presentation of the newly renamed John Hughes Medal to chorister, Theo Amies. We were also pleased to award Gus Richards with the David White Medal and Kieran Hazell-Luttman with the Anderson Cup, and celebrate William Barbrook's and Ben Scott-Warren's promotion to choristerships.
