St Catharine’s College lies at the historic centre of Cambridge and at the heart of the University’s distinguished musical tradition. Founded in 1473, there has been a choir associated with the college for over a hundred years; and since 2008 the choral tradition at St Catharine’s has been augemented by a Girls’ Choir, the first college-based choir of its type in the UK. In recent years the choir has toured to Japan, Singapore, the United States and China, and makes frequent visits to the continent. The choir has released four discs in recent years on the Resonus Classics label, championing the best in contemporary British choral music as well as little-known Renaissance repertoire; the latest is devoted to previously unrecorded music from Reformation France. In the past two year the choirs have made several broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and 4. The choir is directed by Dr Edward Wickham with the assistance of an organ scholar.
