Sat 13 Jul, University Church of St Mary the Virgin
Dating from the 11th century, the church is historically the most important building in Oxford. Among other things, it is where the Protestant Archbishops Cranmer, Ridley and Latimer were tried for heresy in 1555 and condemned to be burned at the stake. It was also used for university ceremonies and examinations before the building of the Examination Schools and the Sheldonian Theatre.

The title of this exciting programme comes from Jonathan Dove’s outstanding cycle for chamber choir and virtuoso pianist: The Passing of the Year. Dove brings music to the words of William Blake, Emily Dickinson, George Peele, Thomas Nash and Alfred, Lord Tennyson. The programme will also include Vaughan Williams’ classic Five Mystical Songs, which set to music the poetic meditations of George Herbert.
