Recordings and Reviews



The choir has made several commercial recordings under Sarah MacDonald’s direction. A full list of the choir’s recordings can be found here:

"The Eternal Ecstasy", July 2015, spent several weeks in the specialist charts, and can be purchased here.

"The music is as timeless, spacious, and rapturous as you would hope for. The performances by the choir of Selwyn College, Cambridge are sublime, and the recording captures them in all their glory, helped by the incomparable acoustics of the Lady Chapel of Ely Cathedral."

The choir received a four-star review in the Times in July 2014 for their performance of the Rachmaninoff's All Night Vigil as part of the City of London Festival: "A beautifully sustained performance in which intonation remained secure — no mean feat — and the blend of voices was cool, elegant and textually responsive."
