In the fourth concert of this term's recital series given by the Clerks of Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Crawford Wiley (Bass) and Helen Birch (Piano) explore the influential life and music of Charles Villiers Stanford, featuring songs by him and his contemporaries.

The Clerks are the professional adult singers of Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford. The choir is revered for the vibrancy of its sound and its artistic flexibility, performing early and contemporary music with equal skill. Over the years the choir has provided a perfect platform for singers to progress to other award-winning choral groups such as the BBC Singers, The Sixteen, The King’s Singers, The Tallis Scholars and The Cardinall’s Musick as well as to solo careers in oratorio, opera and musical theatre.

The choir is regularly involved in broadcasts of Evensong and other key services and concerts, and is often heard performing theme tunes and incidental music for TV dramas and films. Find out more on the college website.
