With a sound hailed as ‘unspeakably beautiful‘ by Gramophone, the Rodolfus Choir has established itself firmly over a period of thirty years as one of the leading young choirs in the United Kingdom, during which time they have developed a lasting reputation for their commitment to the very highest level of musicality. Comprising some of the finest young singers in the country, its members are all alumni of the famous Eton Choral Courses.  Conducted by their founder Ralph Allwood, the fresh and vibrant sound of the choir is a reflection of their profound sensitivity to dynamic contrast, blend and phrasing. The group have become renowned for their imaginative programming, their innovative and exciting performances, as well as for their extensive array of recordings.
