The aim of the course is to train musicians in the art of choral conducting, vocal performance or organ performance; to instruct them in diverse aspects of the history and practice of choral music; to provide the technical skills required to work with historic repertoires and to make musical arrangements; to facilitate research into and performance of new or little-known repertoire; to give students the experience of observing and working in the collegiate chapel choirs; for singers and organists to develop skills in both solo and ensemble performance.

Learning Outcomes

Graduates will be fully equipped to work as choral conductors, vocal ensemble singers and organists, and have a good understanding of many aspects of choral, vocal and organ music. They will have acquired a good knowledge of the way choral music works in the liturgy of the church and other historical and technical issues. Graduates will have developed their writing skills as well as their practical skills. They will also have developed specific skills by completing one optional task: the writing of an extended essay, the editing of early music, music arrangement, or a second-study performance option.
