Friday saw the Mixed Choir travel to Oxford to take part in a service in Magdalen College chapel. The choir sang together with the Magdalen choir, who are directed by Mark Williams, former director at Jesus College. The two choirs also enjoyed an afternoon of punting courtesy of the Magdalen Choral Scholars, and a delicious barbecue at Mark Williams' house, as well as singing music by Lloyd, Leighton and Matthew Martin. We hope that the collaboration between the choirs may continue in the future!
