Director of Music in Chapel
Sarah Macdonald (since )
The Chapel's mixed voices choir was formed in 1976. It consists of 28 singers who are Choral Exhibitioners and volunteers from Selwyn and Newnham as well as 2 organ scholars. They sing many services and concerts throughout the UK as well as tours abroad and recordings.
The Chapel has a magnificent new organ, 'Organes letourneau Ltee's Opus 95', completed in 2004. Its specification includes 39 stops over three manuals and pedal and mechanical action whilst its fiery reeds are particularly popular. It is much in demand as a recital and teaching instrument.
Dean & Chaplain
The Revd Dr Joe Kennedy (since )
The college takes its name from George Augustus Selwyn, Bishop of New Zealand and then Bishop of Lichfield. The distinctive red-brick Victorian Old Court was designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield in 1880 and the college opened in 1882. Its fine gardens include many magnificent trees, the Victorian Border, Virginia Creeper over the Old Court Buildings and a Lower Lawn much frequented by the public at lunch times.
