- Canterbury Cathedral
In April 2014, Chapel Choir sang at all the services in Canterbury Cathedral for a week, beginning with the Eucharist on Sunday morning.
This was an experience very different from singing in King’s College Chapel: Canterbury is a vast space to fill.
- St Leonard's, Hythe
It was an invitation to sing in the concert series promoted by St Leonard’s, Hythe, that took the Choir to Kent and to Canterbury Cathedral in 2014.
The programme included three works by postgraduate composers working with Prof. Paul Mealor and Dr Phillip Cooke at the University of Aberdeen: John Hudson, Thomas LaVoy and Ed Jones.
- Concerts in Aberdeen
Chapel Choir has performed in a number of concerts as part of the University’s concert series over recent years.
Repertoire has included an Ode for St Cecelia’s Day by the seventeenth-century composer, John Blow, with the University’s Baroque Ensemble playing on original instruments. We premiered two motets by Phillip Cooke in chapel services, before performing them in a concert which took place in St Machar’s Cathedral.
