About the group

Collegium Regale (Latin for ‘King’s College’) is the close harmony group made up of the fourteen Choral Scholars of the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge. Although the Choral Scholars sing in the daily services in the chapel, which remain the choir’s raison d’être, Collegium Regale is independent of the choir and sings a different repertoire.

As Collegium Regale, the group provides entertainment at dinners and conferences, as well as giving frequent concerts — notably at Easter when they split into two groups which tour the North and South of England. Our programme for these reveals the breadth of our repertoire: sacred music from the fifteenth to the twentieth century, madrigals, folk songs, part songs and, of course, close harmony — for which the group is best known.

In 1968, some Choral Scholars from King’s College went out in the big wide world. The in-house group they had begun, Collegium Regale, had whetted their appetite (and their audience’s) for regular concerts. Sir David Willcocks said it would never last. But before long they were a world-phenomenon. Take a look at what The King’s Singers are doing today.
