MUSIC FROM THE DREAMING SPIRES
A Lunchtime Recital by the Chapel Choir of Exeter College, Oxford
directed by George de Voil
Works by J.S. Bach, Maurice Duruflé and Sir Hubert Parry
The Chapel Choir of Exeter College, Oxford remains the only choir in either Oxford or Cambridge under the sole direction of the Organ Scholar to sing three Evensongs a week, and is widely regarded as one of the finest student ensembles in the country. The choir has recently toured Barcelona, Northern Italy, Paris, and the USA. In 2013 they visited the Adriatic Coast of Italy as part of the Anglican Communion’s ecumenical relations with the region, and they return to the States in 2014, singing in Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and New York. Invitations have also been extended for the choir to sing at St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. To mark the 700th anniversary of Exeter College’s foundation in 1314, the choir was heard on BBC Radio 4 for a week of daily services, as part of a series of upcoming broadcasts by the choir.
