Robert Francis Kilvert in Oxford - 25 May, 1876

from Diary of Francis Kilvert, Holy Thursday, 25 May 1876, page 316:

This afternoon Mayhew and I attended the evensong of the Ascension at New College Chapel.... The Chapel was filled with people. There were 'High Prayers', a magnificent tempest of an Anthem, and a superb voluntary after the service during which people stood about in picturesque groups in the light streaming from the great West window or sat listening in the Antechapel stalls.
