Thursday's programme includes music by Byrd, Tallis, Gibbons and Purcell.
On Friday, the choir is billed to perform a special concert at St Catherine’s Church in Kraków to mark the first anniversary of the death of Cardinal Franciszek Macharski, who served as Archbishop of Kraków for almost three decades.
In Kraków, the choir will perform the Missa Dominicana by the 16th century English composer Nicholas Ludford.
The Trinity Boys Choir has been at the forefront of the British music scene for the past fifty years.
It is made up of students of the Trinity School in Croydon, London, which is considered one of best music schools in the UK.
The choir has performed throughout Europe, the USA and Japan and at such prestigious events as the BBC Proms and the Glyndebourne Opera Festival, and venues including Covent Garden and Opera Comique in Paris.
