Beautiful music by a talented choir in the lovely and intimate setting of the college chapel. Provides a delightful counterpoint to a Kings College performance - both are exquisite but in different ways.

This is one of the older colleges and it provides a delightful walk in what one imagines a cambridge college should be like. Peaceful and exuding an atmosphere of calm and learning.

Would put the review at good rather than very good. Interesting. The college where Stephen Hawkings did research/studied/taught? Worth a visit. Interesting facade with stories about the figures on the wall.
