The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, under the direction of Timothy Brown, will present a concert at Yale in Woolsey Hall on Saturday, September 24 at 8 pm. The program will include mostly British music spanning 5 centuries. Organist James McVinnie will perform Nico Muhly’s The Hudson Preludes on the Newberry Organ. The performance is sponsored by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music with Christ Church Episcopal.

The Choir of Clare College has toured extensively throughout Europe, the US, Russia, the Middle and Far East. It frequently performs in Britains major concert halls with many of the UK’s leading orchestras, and regularly contributes to the Choral Evensong broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. Outstanding successes in recent seasons have also included highly acclaimed performances at many major European music festivals, including the Munich Opera Festival and the Salzburg Festival. The choir regularly commissions new music and has had works written for it by Christopher Brown, Andrew Carter, Herbert Howells, Nico Muhly, Julian Phillips, Tarik O’Regan, John Rutter and Giles Swayne. It has an extensive discography; its recording of John Rutter’s Requiem on Naxos was an Editor’s Choice in the May 2003 edition of The Gramophone magazine, and gave Naxos its first number one in the classical charts, and in 2005 was nominated for a Classical BRIT Award. The Choir’s most recent recording, of John Stainer’s The Crucifixion, was released on Naxos in May 2005.
