Oxford in Voice (1/6): The Choir

Volume 24 No 3 | Trinity 2012

Oxford in Voice

Oxford University is home to some of the greatest choral music in the world – through the services, performances, recording and tours of its literally dozens of choirs.

For six months, starting in July, Oxford Today will show you how an Oxford choir works – going behind the scenes to understand what it takes to sing at a world-class level, and understanding the scholarship, discipline and passion for excellence that underpins every note. We’ll also be giving Oxford Today readers online the chance to vote for their favourite pieces of Christmas choral music, with the most popular being performed at the famous Christmas service of the choir of New College, Oxford in December, and made available for Oxford Today readers to download.

This video is the first film in our series.

What does it take to sing at a world-class level? In the first of our series on choral music at Oxford, we go behind the scenes of two Oxford choirs to understand the scholarship, passion, and drive for excellence that underpins every note that is sung. Featuring contributions from renowned choral director Edward Higginbottom and Emmy- and Bafta-winning composer and broadcaster Howard Goodall.

Oxford in Voice is a 6-part video series. A new episode will be published each month.
