SANSARA - Choral Masterpieces of Oxford

Following the success of our first series of Music of the Spires concerts in Oxford in 2018, we’re kicking off 2019 with more stunning music from Oxford’s libraries alongside well-known masterpieces from the English choral tradition. Join us in the beautiful chapel of Pusey House for an evening of choral music, old and new, exploring the story of the Three Kings and the threat of King Herod to the infant baby Jesus.
