The Exonian Choir to perform at the church of St Magnus the Martyr

On Saturday 13 January, the Exonian Choir will give a concert celebrating Epiphany at the church of St Magnus the Martyr in the City of London at 7 PM. The Choir is a London-based vocal group started by former members of Exeter College Chapel Choir which features former choral scholars from across Exeter College and the wider University of Oxford.

Founded in 2016, the Exonian Choir has performed in concert and sacred settings in both the UK and abroad. Notably, they have sung at Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and L’Église de la Madeleine. Former Exeter College organ scholar Tim Muggeridge (2013, Music) directs the mixed-voice choir.

The Epiphany concert will feature a host of festive favourites including works by Warlock, Allain, Lassus and Clemens non Papa, as well as Cornelius’s much-loved The Three Kings and Rutter’s spellbinding Hymn to the Creator of Light. The music will allow for reflection and renewal, celebrating light on a dark January evening.

The setting of the upcoming performance is the historic church of St Magnus the Martyr, which boasts a history dating back to the 11th century. The church is famous for its grand Baroque-style architecture.

In addition to the event at St Magnus, the Exonian Choir is scheduled to play at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Canterbury Cathedral, and Bristol Cathedral this year. For details of upcoming performances click here.
