Lincoln College Chapel Choir Lincoln College Chapel Choir holds a fine reputation amongst the vocal ensembles of Oxford University, singing evensong weekly and on special feast days in Lincolns beautiful seventeenth-century chapel.
The choir frequently visits cathedrals across the UK and has recently sung evensong at Westminster Abbey, St.Georges Chapel, Windsor and Eton College. The choir makes two tours annually: a UK tour during the Easter vacation and an international tour at the start of the summer vacation.
Past tours have taken the choir to Santiago de Compostela, Switzerland and Rome where they had the privilege of singing for Pope John Paul II. Recently the choir toured to Dublin as resident choir at Christ Church Cathedral.
The forthcoming UK tour of northwest England for Easter 2007 will include performances at Blackburn Cathedral as well as recording four services for the Radio 4 Daily Service.The Song of Songs On encountering the Song of Songs for the first time, perhaps the most common reaction is one of surprise. What is a love poem, and especially a love poem replete with apparently erotic imagery, doing in the Bible?
Traditionally, the Song was ascribed to King Solomon of Israel and read figuratively, as an allegory or a parable of the love of God for His people.
