The Chapel choir is a mixed voice ensemble of 25 voices, 12 choral scholars and other volunteer voices. There are two organ scholars whose responsibility is to train, conduct and accompany the choir. There are regular tours both at home and abroad.
The organ is a Father Henry Willis organ of 1875, which was completely restored in 2003 by Nicholson of Worcester. The original pipework and tracker action were retained.
Chaplain, The Master
Professor Bernard Silverman (since )
The college was founded by Bishop Francis Chavasse and his son, Christopher, later Bishop of Rochester, in 1929 to provide a low-cost Oxford education for promising students of limited means. It became a full college of the University in 1961. Its buildings date from 1794, Linton house, 1874, the College Chapel, through a range of purpose-built college buildings of the 20th century.
