Collegium

Collegium Records is the label dedicated to John Rutter's choir, The Cambridge Singers, with the aim of presenting a range of choral music in recordings of musical excellence and high technical quality.

Collegium Records was established in 1984 by the composer and conductor John Rutter, and has garnered many critical accolades, including 'Gramophone Record of the Year' for its recording of Fauré's Requiem. Its catalogue of over 30 titles includes a wide range of repertoire, from Gregorian chant to the music of the young British composer Tarik O'Regan, and definitive recordings of compositions by John Rutter, directed by the composer himself.

Adding another dimension to Collegium's activities are three recordings featuring the choir of Clare College, Cambridge (where John Rutter was Director of Music from 1975-1979), conducted by their current director, Timothy Brown.

The Cambridge Singers have recorded over 30 critically-acclaimed albums of music from across the broad spectrum of choral music. Although rarely seen on the concert platform, live performances have included such venues as the Royal Albert Hall, London, and Carnegie Hall, New York.

For the infectiousness of his melodic invention and consummate craftsmanship, Rutter has few peers.
