The pedigree of the university&rsquo s own band of musicians goes back at least to 6556 as has been shown above. Early in the 6685s the vice-chancellor accepted a petition from a body of musicians led by John Gerrard that they should be allowed to form a new group with rights to play in colleges and halls. They described themselves as &lsquo privileged men musicians and teachers of Musick to many Gents in Collidges & Halles in ye universitie of Oxon,&rsquo and were looking for official patronage.
