Sun 26 Mar, Exeter College Chapel
The chapel dominates the Front Quad of the College and plays frequent host to organ recitals, major services and various other musical and dramatic performances. The Chapel was built in 1850, and is an outstanding example of gothic architecture. The building and its decoration are in the style of the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.
Facilities: Toilets, Bar (College members only).
‘In Quires and Places where they sing, here followeth the Anthem’ (BCP 1662). These words opened the way for a stream of creativity in words and music, enriching the worship of the Church of England from that day to this. In the wonderful setting of Exeter College Chapel, OPMS presents a concert celebration of some of the rich variety of this music, featuring anthems from Tallis, Stanford, and other noted composers of the genre, right the way through to modern-day composers.

Elgar: Give unto the Lord
Stainer: I saw the Lord
