Collection Title
University of Oxford: Jesus College (1885-1920)
Unique Identifier
G.A.Oxon 8o 1108
A miscellaneous collection of programmes with words for annual concerts given at Jesus College, University of Oxford, between 1885 and 1895 (missing 1886, 1889 and 1893) and in 1906, 1912, 1913 and 1920, held loosely within a single parcel.

These were two-part concerts of predominantly British vocal and choral repertory, with some instrumental solos. All concerts included the Welsh National Anthem (Land of my Fathers).

The concerts were conducted by H. J. Franklin (1885–92), Mr W. Davies (1894–95) and E. M. Besly (1920): no conductor is cited for the remaining years.

Many of the programmes include information about the President, Committee and Stewards for the concert and the programmes for 1888 and from 1891 to 1895 include lists of the choral ensemble.
