Trinity College Chapel Choir: Profiling Chorister Perceptions


The Trinity College Dublin Chapel Choir is an institution that dates from the seventeenth century. Until recently, however, very little information existed on the chapel choristers themselves. The current study, which is the first study of the chapel choristers to be published, is designed to fill this lacuna. It is composed of two parts, which will be shared across two issues of Studies. This first part covers the findings from an investigation into how current chapel choristers view the musical, spiritual, and social aspects of their experience, revealing new cultural perspectives of affiliation, achievement and agency. But first a historical overview of the Chapel Choir at Trinity College.
