David Trendell has been College Organist and Lecturer in Music at King's since 1992. In that time he has established the chapel choir as one of the finest mixed-voice university choirs in the country. They have made several recordings in recent years of sixteenth-century music, thus tying in with Trendell's research interests. Their disc of Taverner's Missa Corona spinea was nominated for a Gramophone award in the Early Music category and their disc of music by Alonso Lobo was chosen by Gramphone reviewer, Tess Knighton, as one of her two favourite CDs of the year. More recently, they have continued their relationship with Sanctuary's Gaudeamus label by recording music by Sebastian de Vivanco and they have also recorded a disc of music for Advent with the renowned viol consort Phantasm on the Herald label.<br /> <br /> Trendell was educated as an organ scholar at Exeter College, Oxford, and, prior to his arrival at King's was Lecturer at St Hilda's, St Hugh's and Oriel Colleges. He is much in demand as a choral conductor and frequently directs choral workshops in the USA.<br /> <br /> In recent years the choir has toured the USA, France, Ireland and Italy.
