St Peter’s College, Oxford, one of Oxford University’s finest mixed-voice choirs.
Almost all of the current choir are members of St Peter’s College, although a small number of students audition to join who are members of other Colleges.
The Choir sings an extensive repertoire of Church music, primarily at the two Evensong services in St Peter’s each week during term. It conducts UK and overseas tours, performs several concerts each year, and has made two recordings in recent years. The Choir is known for its very high standard and broad range, and members of the choir are some of the leading musicians in the wider musical activities of the University.
Following an extremely exiting term of music making, the Choir now turns to it’s biennial performance of J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion.
The Choir has just released its second recording, following the success of Anthems and Motets of the English Romantic Tradition (2013). The Church Music of Samuel Sebastian Wesley (2014) can be purchased from the Porter’s Lodge, or alternatively from Oxrecs, at http://www.oxrecs.com/StPeters2014.html.
You can purchase Anthems and Motets of the English Romantic Tradition (2013) from the Oxford University Shop or a digital download from the iTunes Music Store.
