Since the founding of a mixed voice choir in 1971, the Choir of Clare College has gained an international reputation as one of the leading university choral groups in the world. The choir keeps an active schedule recording, broadcasting, and performing throughout the UK and the world. The choir has been fortunate to have had four very fine directors: Peter Dennison; John Rutter; Timothy Brown; and since 2010, Graham Ross.
The choir has toured widely, including in Europe, the United States, Japan, China, Russia, and the Middle East. Releasing over 40 recordings to critical acclaim, the Choir's "Advent" CD is set for release in late 2013 on the Harmonia Mundi label.
