Sat 22 Jul, 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.
A varied programme of music by, or associated with, Masters of the King’s (Queen’s) Music. Composers include Maurice Greene, William Boyce, Edward Elgar, Judith Weir – and Prince Albert. The ticket price includes an interval glass of wine in the Cathedral cloisters.
The Cathedral Singers of Christ Church sing about 100-120 daily services a year, when the main Cathedral Choir is not in residence. We are amateur musicians from all walks of life, who maintain an excellent musical standard, with repertoire extending from early Renaissance polyphony to the present day.
