Lincoln College

The Choir

Lincoln College Choir enjoys a fine reputation, and has been recorded and broadcast on national radio. It sings on Sunday afternoons, for some mid-week services and on special occasions. The Senior Hollingsworth Organ Scholar (james.dcosta@lincoln.ox.ac.uk) would be glad to hear from those interested in singing in the Choir.

Love Divine: Wesleyan Music from the Choir of Lincoln College, Oxford

Our latest CD (release 2003) is a collection of Wesleyan music to celebrate the tercentenary of the birth of John Wesley, who was a Fellow of Lincoln.

 

Lincoln Windows, featuring music by Philip Wilby

Released in 2002. It includes a commission for the choir that takes as its inspiration the typology of the East Window of the chapel.

 

O Magnum Mysterium Christmas Music from the choir of Lincoln College, Oxford

Released in 2001. It includes an interesting and varied collection of music for the Christmas season, some well known and some less so. In March 2001 the choir supplied the chorus for the world premiere of the opera/oratorio The Word, by John Caldwell. This follows on from Caldwell's earlier work, Good Friday, our recording of which has also been released on CD by Guild Music.

 

Our other CDs include Magnificat and Peace in our Time, both of which may be bought directly from Guild Music, (www.guildmusic.com), or from the porters' lodge.


Lincoln's most recent recording, The Voice of My Beloved, was directed by Paul Wingfield and Rebecca Taylor played the organ. It is a recording of various settings of texts from the Song of Songs  ranging from the Renaissance to the present day. Settings by Orlando Lassus, Patrick Hadley, as well as recent works by John Caldwell and Richard Pantcheff.

All these are available from the Porter's Lodge, on + 44 (0)1865 279800 or from steward@lincoln.ox.ac.uk
