Notes and Editorial Reviews

Treasures of Christ Church is a special, newly recorded collection spanning 500 years of English choral music, performed from original manuscripts, that uncovers the unique history of music at Christ Church, Oxford. All of the composers on Treasures had an association with Christ Church (whose hallowed halls were famously seen in the Harry Potter films), stretching back to the tenure of John Taverner; through Tallis, Handel, Purcell, and Byrd; to present-day world premiere recordings of works by John Rutter and Howard Goodall. The packaging features striking visuals, with photographs of original manuscripts on pristinely preserved parchment and leather-bound, gold-embossed scores.
