Hailed as one of America's top collegiate ensembles, the Stanford Chamber Chorale is Stanford University's most select choir. Members of the ensemble are graduate and undergraduate students at Stanford University and hail from across the United States and around the world. The Chorale’s two most recent CDs appeared on the first-round ballot for the Grammy Awards in several categories, including 'Best Choral Performance'. Beyond campus, the Chorale regularly undertakes international tours to Asia and Europe as well as domestic travel to major U.S. cities. They have performed in the great British cathedrals of Ely, Exeter, Lincoln, Newport, Norwich, Salisbury, Wells, York, and Llandaff, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Hiroshima Prefectural Art Museum, collegiate chapels in Oxford (New College, Magdalen College, Jesus College) and Cambridge (King’s College, St John’s College, Trinity College), the Great Hall of the People (Beijing), and the National Gallery of Art (Washington, DC). While abroad the Chorale has been privileged to collaborate with a number of ensembles, among them the Choirs of St John’s College and Trinity College, Cambridge and the Chamber Choir of the Berlin University of the Arts. This concert forms part of their 2019 UK concert tour.

The Choir of The Queen’s College, Oxford is among the finest and most active university choirs in the UK. Its wide-ranging repertory includes a rich array of music from Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces to contemporary works, including commissions. During the academic year the Choir provides the music for regular services in the splendid Baroque Chapel of The Queen’s College and its extensive concert schedule involves appearances in many parts of the UK and abroad, including work with various professional orchestras such as the Academy of Ancient Music and the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra. The Choir broadcasts regularly on BBC Radio, while tours in recent years have included China and the USA. The Choir's latest CD recording was released in February 2019 and features the Missa Gloria tibi trinitas and other works by the sixteenth-century composer John Taverner. The disc has met with universal acclaim as critics praised the ‘grandeur' and 'wonderful wall of sound'.
