Trinity College was founded by Henry VIII in 1546 as part of the University of Cambridge. Since then Trinity has flourished and grown, and is now a home to around 600 undergraduates, 300 graduates, and over 160 Fellows.

The chapel is a high point of a visit to Trinity, and an important part of College life for a number of its members. The glory of Trinity's chapel is its choir composed of talented male and female choral scholars, who put considerable energy into singing beautifully alongside reading for a degree.
