The Chapel Choir is a mixed voice choir of 15 undergraduates and graduates from the body of the College all of whom are either Choral Scholars or Exhibitioners. It sings Evensong three times a week as well as participating in concerts and termly visits to cathedrals. The Choir tours abroad annually and sings a wide range of Anglican choral music with particular emphasis on the world famous Peterhouse Partbooks. It is directed by the two organ scholars.
The organ was built by Snetzler in 1765, rebuilt by Hill in the 19th century and restored during the 1960s.

The college was founded in 1284 by Hugo de Balsham, Bishop of Ely. It has many fine buildings as evidence of this early foundation, the Hall, a late 13th century building heightened in the 15th century and remedievalised in 1870 by George Gilbert Scott, the Chapel and Library from 1630, Gothic buildings with incorporated Renaissance details, the Master's Lodge 1702, unquestionably the finest Georgian building in Cambridge, the Burroughs Building 1736 and Gisborne Court 1825.
