To date, the JCS has a discography of over 20 recordings. On the ASV label are discs of music by Jonathan Harvey, Francis Poulenc and Samuel Barber, and for EMI Classics, Garland for Linda.

Other releases include A Plum Pudding with Dame Felicity Lott and Gabriel Woolf (White Line), Angels Sing! – choral music by Roxanna Panufnik (Warner Classics), Malcolm Williamson, (Naxos), and by Cecilia McDowall (Dutton Epoch) and of Christmas music by Roderick Elms with the RPO (Naxos). Where Hope is Shining, a disc of choral works by Vaughan Williams, was released by Albion Records in 2008 and Sing Joyfully, a collection of British Music on its own label in 2009.

Also on the Albion label, the JCS recorded Vaughan Williams’ Garden of  Proserpine, a work that had waited 112 years for its first public performance, which the JCS and Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra gave at the English Music Festival in 2011. There was also a regular collaboration with the late Richard Hickox and CLS for Chandos, including three CDs in the complete Percy Grainger Series, Lennox Berkeley’s Ruth, a recording of Vaughan Williams’ Christmas choral music and a recording of Holst’s choral ballet music with BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Two rather different recording ventures will bring the JCS to the ears of new audiences on a daily basis, as the choir performs on the soundtrack that now greets visitors to the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London and to the public taking in the view from the top of the Shard.
