Corpus Christi College has an active and friendly Chapel in which the music programme is co-led by the Director of Music and the Organ Scholars, with additional support and supervision of the College Lecturer and Advisor in Music and the Chaplain. There is a weekly Sunday evening service (Evensong or Eucharist), as well as occasional extra services (such as Carol Services, Corpus Christi Day, and regular Compline).
The Chapel choir currently numbers about 20-25 singers, and is made up of volunteers from the wider College community supported by eight Choral Bursars, who receive singing lessons and a small stipend. The Chapel is fortunate to have an historic Hill & Son organ (1880) and a Goble harpsichord.
The Organ Scholars receive a sum of £700 per year. The senior scholar is accommodated in the main quad in a set of rooms with a piano. The junior scholar also has main quad rooms with a spinet. The Director of Music, Dr Jonathan White, and College Lecturer and Advisor in Music, Dr Katie Pardee, provide professional mentoring to the Organ Scholars concerning the termly choral list and other aspects of leading a busy musical programme, as well as three to four organ lessons per term. In the case of Organ Scholars reading Music, Dr Pardee is also their director of studies for the degree course. Conducting lessons can also be arranged by the College Lecturer in Music.
Organ Scholars may be admitted to read any subject that the College admits, and Organ Scholars may read Music at Corpus.
The Choir frequently goes on a tour in the summer. Tours are arranged by the organ scholars. Choir trips have included tours to Dublin, Rome, Canada, Japan, as well as around England. The Choir has recorded three CDs, the most recent of which is a Christmas recording which was released in December 2016.
