The Korrigan Consort presents ‘Life of St. Frideswide’
October 12, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree – £15
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 Cathedral 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, this concert in particular marks the permanent establishment of the Frideswide Voices as the official girls’ choir at Christ Church Cathedral.
A complimentary drinks reception will follow the concert in the Cathedral.
Tickets: £15 (standard)/£7 (under 26s) – Children under 16 go free
