The Choir in pictures

Daily services

The Choir was founded by Henry VI (1421 - 1471) to sing daily services. This is still the Choir's most important role and they sing services every day during term time. The choristers wear their traditional black gowns and top hats as they walk across from King's College School to the Chapel. You are welcome to attend the choral services they sing (see Chapel services).
