Trinity College Choir’s award-winning discography is a remarkable body of work accomplished over some 40 years by Stephen Layton, Richard Marlow, and successive generations of choral and organ scholars. Alongside foundational masterworks of the European Renaissance, Baroque and Romantic periods, the Choir’s recordings champion the decisive 20th century contributions of Britten, Poulenc, Walton, Leighton, Duruflé, Stravinsky and Howells, and offer one of the most adventurous surveys by any modern choir of today’s choral avant-garde.
Contemporary composers recorded by the Choir include Cecilia McDowall, Ēriks Ešenvalds, David Briggs, Paweł Łukaszewski , Ola Gjeilo, Uģis Prauliņš, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, and Trinity alumnus Owain Park, with many recordings featuring works written for Trinity. Recordings of Baroque and 20th century repertoire have enabled collaborations with the Academy of Ancient Music, the Orchestra of the Age of Englightenment, Britten Sinfonia and City of London Sinfonia, and with soloists including Susan Gritton, Emma Kirkby, Iestyn Davies, Allan Clayton, James Gilchrist, Thomas Hobbs, Matthew Brook, Neal Davies, and alumni Katherine Watson, Zoë Brookshaw, Helen Charlston, Christopher Lowrey and Gwilym Bowen.
This page lists all original CD albums issued by the Choir since the mid-1980s, and the principal notable compilations. The Choir’s earliest CD releases were on the Conifer Classics label, subsequently merged into BMG and Sony Music who selectively re-issued and re-compiled Conifer Classics material under various imprints, and licensed re-issues and compilations by other labels. All recordings are presented here with their originally-issued catalogue numbers; links to re-issues are provided where available.
