Magdalen College Choir May Morning

"The Magdalen Choir… make an exceptional sound, and the direction is notable for its attention to inner detail and clear sense of architecture." (Gramophone)

The Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford was founded in 1480. Magdalen College was one of the leading choral foundations in late-medieval England. This historic legacy has been preserved and maintained over five centuries. The Choir exists primarily to sing the daily services in Magdalen College Chapel during term time. They also sing at a number of special occasions throughout the year, including the famous May Day celebrations. Away from the Chapel they can be heard in concert and on tour, and they enjoy an exclusive recording agreement with Opus Arte (the label of the Royal Opera House). Alongside information on our current activities, you will find details on this website concerning the process for admission as a chorister, choral scholar or organist.
