The University’s 2015 Christmas Carol Service featured a new anthem by John Pickard, Professor of Composition and Applied Musicology.

‘O Magnum Mysterium’ was specially composed for the event, which was held in the Great Hall of the Wills Memorial Building.

It was sung by members of the University Choral Society, a non-auditioned choir run by the Department of Music and comprising students and staff from across the University.

A recording of the performance, which Professor Pickard also conducted, is available on youtube.
