Video: History

Stephen Darlington talks about the unique institution that is Christ Church. You can also hear a small excerpt of Pygott – ‘Quid Petis O Fili‘; Richard Pygott was Master of the Choristers to the household chapel of Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, who founded Cardinal College in 1525, which was then refounded as Christ Church in 1546.

I must confess to be slightly biased towards Christ Church’s recording of this piece, as I’m singing the 1st Alto part!
