This week's webcast includes Cedit, Hyems (Be gone, winter), a setting by Abbie Betinis of an anonymous 14th century poem found amongst the Carmina Burana at the Benediktbeuern Abbey in Bavaria. The choir was joined by flautist Catriona Bourne.
The President of St John’s College – Dr Frank Salmon, FSA – has written programme notes for the Choir’s new recording,Locus Iste, telling the story of our College Chapel. The recording marks the 150th anniversary of the Chapel’s Consecration.
In the first part of these serialised notes, Dr Salmon explains how our current College Chapel came to be built.
