The Charter Choir performs a variety of choral music, ranging in era from plainchant to Henry Purcell to Arvo Pärt, and everything in between. Although music for the office of Evensong takes up the majority of the Choir’s repertoire, secular pieces are also learnt, especially for end-of-term concerts and College feasts.
The music list for Lent 2017 is now available.
The Choir also sings in the end-of-term concerts, organised by the Homerton College Music Society, and there are also occasional other weekend and weekday commitments, including cathedral visits, an Advent Carol Service, and a Choral Eucharist on Ash Wednesday and Ascension Day. At an average of four hours' commitment per week, the workload is light in comparison with other Cambridge choirs, but a high standard of music-making is nevertheless expected. The Charter Choir also plays an important part in the College's secular life, including singing at the College's main annual feast, the Charter Dinner.
