The famous organ, built by the Danish maker Frobenius in 1965, played a notable role in the classical organ revival in the UK and is used for weekly recitals on Wednesdays at 13.10 in term time.
Revd. Dr Michael Lloyd (since 2010)
The college was founded in 1341 by Robert de Eglesfield, a Chaplain to Queen Philippa. The medieval college was rebuilt in the early 1700s so that by 1730 Queens was the only Oxford college to be housed entirely in Baroque buildings. The Front Quad has been called 'the grandest piece of classical architecture in Oxford'. The Chapel was consecrated in 1719.
