Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir Københavns Drengekor

Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir was founded in 1924 by Mogens Wöldike to perform choral music written for boys' and men's voices from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. In 1929 the Copenhagen City Council established a Choir School for the boys, the present Sankt Annæ Gymnasium (St. Anne's Gymnasium). Until 1959 Copenhagen Boys' Choir was permanently connected with Christiansborg Slotskirke (The Chapel of Chistiansborg Castle), but since then the choir has throughout the main season been giving regular concerts every Friday evening in Copenhagen Cathedral, and the boys have also been singing at High Mass and Vespers in the Cathedral. With a comprehensive repertoire ranging from commissioned works by the leading composers of our time to the earliest polyphony the choir has over the years gained a reputation for being one of the finest of its type and it has given concerts in all parts of the world. The choir has also taken part in radio and television productions both in Denmark and in other countries.
