Collegium Regale (Latin for “King’s College”) is the close harmony group made up of the fourteen choral scholars of the Choir of Kings’ College, Cambridge. Although the choral scholars sing in the daily services in the chapel, which remain the choir’s raison d’etre, Collegium Regale is independent of the choir and sings a different repertoire.
As Collegium Regale, the group gives frequent concerts – notably at Easter when they split into two groups which tour the north and south of England. Their programs reflect the breadth of their repertoire: sacred music from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, madrigals, folk songs, part songs, and, of course, the close harmony for which the group is best known.
On its first visit to New Haven, the group will perform early sacred choral works (Palestrina, Parsons, Josquin), part songs (Wagner, Schubert, Vaughn Williams), and a selection of close-harmony arrangements of folksongs and a capella favorites.
There are no tickets; $15 is the suggested donation; $10 for students and seniors. The concert is presented by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music and Trinity Church on the Green, New Haven.
