Sat 16 Dec, Christ Church
This twelfth century church is amongst the oldest buildings in Oxford, and one of the smallest Anglican cathedrals in England. It is also the only church in the world to be both a cathedral and a college chapel. Music plays an important part in the life of the Cathedral, and its choir sings throughout each week during term time. During the University vacations, many services are sung by the Cathedral Singers, a voluntary choir of both men and women. The Cathedral also plays host to many other choirs and concerts from around the world.
Capacity: up to 1000
Facilities: No parking facilities. Disabled access.
The Cathedral Singers Christmas Concert is always a highlight of the festive season at Christ Church Cathedral. This year will be even more special, as the Singers are joined by Oxybaroxy, the Oxfordshire Youth Baroque Strings, and a quartet of tremendous young soloists, to perform Handel’s uplifting Messiah, under director James Morley Potter.
All seating is unreserved, so please arrive in plenty of time to find a seat.
Duration: 2 hours 15mins with interval
