Biography

Seven services a week in Term are sung by the Choir, which is directed by Daniel Hyde, who bears the ancient title Informator Choristarum. The Choir retains much the same shape as it had when it was founded in 1480, with sixteen boy Choristers (educated at Magdalen College School) and twelve adult Academical Clerks (undergraduates of the College).

They have appeared frequently on television and radio, and in the motion picture Shadowlands, and have sung to appreciative audiences all over the world. They have made a number of recordings, one of which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005. But their primary attention continues to be focused on daily Chapel services, which they sing every evening in Full Term (except Tuesdays) at 6.00 pm, and every Sunday morning in Term at 11.30 am. The repertoire of settings for Evensong and the Mass ranges from works by John Sheppard (Informator Choristarum in the 16th century) to modern pieces by the present Informator, Grayston Ives, who is a distinguished composer of sacred music.
