May Day Singing goes on
Tower top singing at Magdalen College Oxford has been taking place early on May morning since 1509. Will it happen tomorrow?
Yes, although not from the Great Tower.
The 28 members of the choir will be singing the Hymnus Eucharisticus and a traditional madrigal remotely from their homes around the country.
To follow at 6am on Thursday 1 May go to the Magdalen website.
May Day is St Joseph the Worker Day and the start of the month of Mary which ends with The Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Elizabeth.
