About Us


Sir Thomas Allen

"Oxford Lieder goes from strength to strength, with interesting and appropriate programming. More and more these days the fate of the performance of Art Song is left to the passion of one or two individuals for its inclusion in our diet. We should applaud Sholto Kynoch for his creation of this Lieder Festival and once again I wish him, the performers and all who come to listen the most satisfying of times in allowing us a further arena in which to hear this great musical literature."
