Sat 1 Dec, 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.

A musical journey from Advent to Epiphany
Our Christmas journey begins with the heightened expectations of Advent—the wondrous music of this season is often overlooked in the mad rush of shopping and carol concerts—then takes us through the Nativity story by way of a few familiar and not so familiar carols, before leading us into a musical Epiphany.
Join us for an evocative choral excursion through the Christmas story, featuring the music of Jonathan Dove, Vaughan Williams, Britten, Tavener, Kodaly and many more.… with a few mince pies and some mulled wine for the road.
