Swithun Choir Evensong in Oxford

On a glorious summer’s day in early July, Swithun Choir visited Oxford to sing evensong at Christ Church cathedral. During the afternoon the girls participated in a workshop at Magdalen College with their Director of Chapel Music, Daniel Hyde, who gave the girls invaluable advice about choral singing and also spoke about choral scholarships at Oxford.

They also had a tour of Brasenose College and enjoyed a picnic in Christ Church meadows. The choir sang music by Sumsion and Elgar in the magnificent surroundings of Christ Church cathedral, with a full congregation comprising tourists and many Swithun Choir parents.
