The Rooke Chapel Choir, under the direction of William Payn, has gained international recognition in performances of some of the most significant works in the twentieth century American sacred repertoire. Its select members represent every major field of study at Bucknell, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, business administration, education and engineering. The Rooke Chapel Ringers were formed in 1983. They consist of 12 players who are selected by audition. Mezzo-soprano D'Anna Fortunato graduated from Bucknell in 1967.

Review:
"...The choir, from Bucknell University, is excellent; the varied program ranges from Palestrina to pleasing contemporary pieces by John Tavener and Lee Hoiby, and the addition of harp and mezzo-soprano give it even more variety. While this disc will probably end up as Christmas background music, it's pretty classy background music." (American Record Guide)
