Davidson College Presbyterian Church: Christ Church Cathedral Choir of Oxford

cl-christ church choir 300pxThe 500-year-old choir returned to the Carolinas in April of 2016 for their third concert appearance in six years. Once again they presented a wide-ranging program in the grand English choral tradition, and this time community singers from churches in Davidson joined them to close the concert, as did local instrumentalists, for a rousing anthem written for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
