Welcome

Exsultate Justi is a small, occasional choir of experienced singers. We share a passion for sacred choral music in the best of the Anglican tradition.

The choir is attached to the Benefice of Hanborough and Freeland, between Oxford and Witney. The benefice includes the parishes of Hanborough and Freeland.
