Virtual May Morning
The 2020 May Morning celebrations may well have been cancelled, but the Choir of Magdalen College were determined not to let this 500-year-old Oxford tradition go unmarked
The Choir welcomed the coming of spring this year as always, but the Choristers and Academical Clerks were not singing from the top of the Great Tower. Instead, the singing was from their homes across the country via video link, a performance recorded over the last few weeks.
You can watch this very special May Morning performance, first shown at 6am on 1 May, on the Choir’s webpage.
