Trinity Term 2016

Wolfson’s new choir director is Meghan Quinlan (D Phil Candidate at Merton). At Wolfson, Meghan will focus the choir’s efforts on music that isn’t well covered in Oxford - music from different ethnic backgrounds, and a variety of countries – which fits well with the diversity of Wolfson’s community. The anticipated unaccompanied repertoire for Trinity is: 

  • Bruremarsj fra Østerdalen (Traditional Norwegian wedding march from Østerdalen.)
  • She Moved through the Fair, performed after Cantus. 
  • Bedu Pako Baramasa (Garhwali folksong from Northern India.)
  • Ned i Vester Soli Glader, arr. Grete Pedersen (Norwegian folksong) 
  • Immortal Bach, Knut Nystedt

Those who sign up to the Wolfson Choir (email Kate Kennedy) will be sent a link to the playlist so they can get a sense of the music before we start singing in Trinity. Come along and sing with us at 8pm on Monday, 24 April at the LWA. 

Meghan Quinlan (Choir Director)

Meghan grew up singing in the internationally acclaimed Hamilton Children’s Choir (Canada), conducted by Zimfira Poloz of Kazakhstan, and later became the conductor of the choir’s youth ensemble. She has appeared as a conductor on Canadian national television and led choral workshops in Estonia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, France, and Poland. With the support of a Grant for Professional Musicians from the Canada Council for the Arts, she studied conducting in Oslo, Norway, and later returned to Oslo to work as the artistic director of the chamber choir Canticum. Since moving to Oxford, she has been writing a doctoral dissertation on medieval song. She sings with and is a former conducting scholar of Schola Cantorum of Oxford.
