Welcome from the Director of Music
I am delighted to welcome you to our online webcasts. For those who are unable to join us in person, or for others who would like a reminder of a special day spent in Oxford, these live recordings will allow you to experience Evensong at The Queen’s College from anywhere in the world. The College is very proud of its choir, and we are pleased to share our music making with you.
Prof. Owen Rees, College Organist (Director of Music)
Welcome from the Chaplain
Oxford is a place where tradition and modernity meet. Cutting edge research takes place within medieval walls. The ancient traditions of this unique place are given new life by a community of scholars, students, residents and tourists from across the world. For many, visitors and members of the university alike, Choral Evensong is a part of the Oxford experience. Here, we hear afresh the ancient words of scripture and the Book of Common Prayer (1662) set to music by composers from sixteenth-century Mexico to twenty-first century Britain. Evensong can ground us, with its unchanging rhythms in the midst of the hectic term. It can also startle us, as we hear familiar words sung in different ways.
This Epiphany season, when we remember the Wise Men from Persia travelling to visit the baby Jesus, and the light of Christ dawning across the globe, seems an especially appropriate time to be re-launching our webcast series. So wherever you are, we invite you to join us, through technology and imagination, in the glorious baroque Chapel of the Queen’s College for our services of Choral Evensong.
