Frideswide Voices was founded last year, and is flourishing under the direction of Will Dawes. We are not the first foundation to host them - in fact, we were beaten to it by both Magdalen and Christ Church, and the girls have also sung at Queen's, Oriel, Trinity, and many times at Worcester - but we hope it won't be long before they return. We certainly have many reasons to welcome them; not least, the fact that several of the Frideswide girls are sisters of current or former New College choristers. It was good to see many relations, friends and supporters in the congregation this evening.
