SERVICE COMMEMORATING GEORGE HERBERT

Sunday, 28 February 2021 | Exeter College Chapel, Oxford

Thank you for joining us for this service commemorating and exploring the poetry of George Herbert. Due to the national lockdown, the music is drawn from the Choir's recording archive, and several pieces have been recorded and edited together from isolation during this past week, including a newly-composed anthem on Herbert's poem 'The Windows' by Nate Sassoon.
