The Choir of St John's College Cambridge, Andrew Nethsingha

Locus Iste celebrates two milestones for the Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, marking their 100th recording release, as well as the 150th anniversary of the consecration of the College Chapel.

Directed by Andrew Nethsingha, the programme makes great use of the Chapel’s renowned acoustic and reflects upon the Choir’s past, present and future. Showcasing choral classics from the past 150 years, the recording also includes two new commissions as well as solo cello by 2012 BBC Young Musician of the Year and current St John’s undergraduate, Laura van der Heijden.

Founded in the 1670s, The Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge, is one of the finest collegiate choirs in the world – known and loved by millions for its rich, warm and distinctive sound, expressive interpretations and ability to sing in a variety of styles.
