Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hailed as “An immensely accomplished and responsive mixed-voice choir,” (International Record Review) the Choir of Merton College, Oxford is now well established among the finest choral foundations of Oxbridge, despite being the youngest. Displaying the talents of directors Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips, Delphian presents this album of the ensemble’s favorite anthems. Included on this album is Jonathan Dove’s Te Deum, which was commissioned by the college as part of the Merton Choirbook in commemoration of the school’s 750th anniversary.
