Saxton anthem sung at Exeter College evensong

Evensong at Exeter College, Oxford, on Friday 4th June, honoured renowned UYMP composer Professor Robert Saxton, who has been Professor of Composition in the Faculty of Music/Tutorial Fellow in Music at Worcester College since 1999. Saxton's beautiful choral work Our Father, whose creative will was given a ‘very fine, distanced rendition’ by Exeter College Choir, who sang through masks and were conducted by the talented Christopher Holman. 

The service began with another Saxton work, Berceuse for a baby, played by the first year organ scholar Miles Swinden, and ended with the organ work Conte by UYMP composer Elisabeth Lutyens.  The officiant was the Reverend Andrew Allen.  The complete service is available to listen via the Exeter College Choir webcast services, on soundcloud, or you can listen to Saxton’s anthem here.
