Chapel music has deep roots in the life of Trinity College. The Chapel Singers are the oldest student organization on campus, dating back to 1824 and the founding of the College. They now perform regularly at services in the Chapel, for College ceremonies, and on occasional concert tours. Chapel music encompasses an active schedule of programs for student singers, organists, carillonneurs, and other instrumentalists. The Chapel houses sacred worship, ceremonies for the College, and a wide variety of concerts, including many a cappella concerts on campus, as well as series of concerts for the greater Hartford community.
“The resonant qualities of the Chapel's fine acoustics provide an excellent setting for choral, vocal, and instrumental performances and for the magnificent 79 rank Austin Pipe organ located under the Rose Window at the Chapel's West End,” says John Rose, Trinity College organist and director of chapel music. The smaller Crypt Chapel houses a tracker organ made by the renowned English pipe organ builder Nicholson & Co. The fine acoustics of this room provide a wonderful ambience for the singing of chants and for smaller instrumental ensembles.
