Cambridge Singers is an English mixed voice chamber choir formed in 1981 by their director John Rutter with the primary purpose of making recordings under their own label Collegium Records.

The group initially comprised former singers from the Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, where Rutter had previously been the music director.

They have been involved in the last four Fresh Aire albums (about "mankind's curiosities") of the Mannheim Steamroller band, by composer Chip Davis, but they are primarily a classical choral group.

They have recorded several highly acclaimed Christmas albums, including Christmas Day in the Morning,[1] Christmas Night: Carols of the Nativity, Christmas Star,[2] Christmas with the Cambridge Singers, and The Cambridge Singers Christmas Album.
