Each year, the festive Mince Pie concert takes place in College Hall. Music is performed by Cantores Episcopi, the school's close harmony group. The name Cantores Episcopi, ‘The Bishop’s Singers’, was chosen because four of the original five members of the group had previously sung as choristers in choirs connected with William of Wykeham (at New College, Oxford, Winchester College or Winchester Cathedral).
The group is directed by Mr David Hurley who sang in the ensemble as a pupil at the school in the 1970s, before a distinguished career with the King’s Singers.
With best wishes for a Merry Christmas from all of us at Winchester College:
