Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue
As part of his farewell tour, conductor Stephen Darlington brings The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford to Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue for an evening of British choral anthems.
Although The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral is 500 years old, it is justly famous for the its youthful sound and adventurous musical programming. Unique in the world as both Cathedral and College choir, the intimate acoustic of its musical home, Oxford’s 12th-century Cathedral, has given it a relationship with early sacred music and the rhythm and vigour of contemporary idioms which is second to none.
