Cathedral Singers of Christ Church

James Morley Potter, director

David Bannister, organ & piano

Since the 17th century, certain composers have been honoured with a particular royal privilege: the prestigious position of Master of the King (or Queen)’s Music. In this concert we will explore the work of the composers appointed to this post, from familiar British musicians such as Edward Elgar, through to the present incumbent, Judith Weir. Along the way we will take in works from the 17th century to the present day, including curiosities from Boyce, Greene, and even a royal consort.

Joint Evensong

The joint evensong held on Monday with the College Choir was a great success. They really appreciate us joining them as it allows then to tackle music they might otherwise be unable to perform. If you missed it this time make a point to put the next one into your diary as soon as we publish the date.
