The Korrigan Consort welcomes you to join our celebration of a phenomenal figure in Oxford: St Frideswide, the Patron Saint of Oxford.
Our concert kicks off a week of events at Christ Church in celebration of Frideswide and her dedication to the wellbeing of her local community. We will follow in her footsteps by telling her story through an evening of reflection with medieval and Renaissance polyphony, with particular focus on music from convents in France, Italy and the Low Countries. The concert will also feature a new piece setting the legend of St. Frideswide, as well as a reading of Jacqueline Holderness’ new book, The Princess Who Hid in a Tree. In the historical setting of Christ Church Cathedral, right next to the Shrine of St Frideswide, this concert in particular marks the permanent establishment of the Frideswide Voices as the official girls’ choir at Christ Church Cathedral.
Tickets available either on the door or below. Ticket comes with a free glass of wine or soft drink.
Saturday October 12 – 8 pm, Christ Church Cathedral
