Director of Music
Professor David Rowland (since )
The choir became a mixed voice choir in 1979, currently with 24 members, most of whom are Choral Exhibitioners. The service music is of the cathedral repertoire and its concert repertoire is very broad. There are two organ scholars.
The organ case and much of the pipework is by Father Smith and dates back to 1705. It was restored in the 1980s and comprises two manuals and pedals. It is mechanical throughout.
The Revd Christopher Woods (since 2007)
The College was founded as God's House in 1437, but then refounded as Christs by Lady Margaret Beaufort in 1505 after her son had become Henry V11. It became one of the leading Puritan colleges of Elizabethan Cambridge with John Milton as one of its famous alumini. The 1640s 'Fellows' Building is one of its finest buildings.
