Trinity College, Cambridge Evensong

20/05/2015

The historical links between Whitgift and Trinity College go back more than 500 years, since the School’s Founder, John Whitgift, was Master of Trinity College from 1567 to 1577. There is also a musical connection between Trinity and Croydon: Thomas Attwood Walmisley (1814-1856), a well-known composer of church music, was Organist of Croydon Minster (now home of the Whitgift Minster Choristers) in 1830, before becoming Organist at Trinity in 1833.

In honour of Walmisley, the Whitgift Chamber Choir are going to sing his mighty Evening Service in D Minor at Evensong, as well as other gems of the English Cathedral Music repertory.
