"Sonic glimpses of not so much samsara as nirvana: molten sound, flowing in luminous streams towards resonant silences, perfectly judged.”

- Music of the Spires audience member

Following the success of our first series of Music of the Spires concerts in Oxford in 2018, we’re kicking off 2019 with more stunning music from Oxford’s libraries alongside well-known masterpieces from the English choral tradition.
