Oxford Carol Competition Success

It gives us great pleasure to announce that William Inscoe from Upper Sixth has just won the Worcester College, Oxford Carol Competition 2019.  Compositions were invited from composers aged 26 or under to be set to the text ‘I sing of a maiden’, and to last no longer than four minutes.  William’s beautiful piece clearly exhibits both his knowledge of the voice and advanced harmonic schemes.  His carol will be premiered at the College Carol Service on 1st December 2019 and at our own Carol Service in Canterbury Cathedral.  Very well done Will; a fantastic achievement!
