Notes and Editorial Reviews

New College Choir is one of the most celebrated and acclaimed choral groups of the UK. It comprises around thirty voices, including its famous boy choristers. It has been around since the late 14th century, when William of Wykeham set up a choral foundation within his ‘New’ College. Since then it has regularly sung chapel services, and continues to do so during the University terms. What has changed rather more dramatically over the years is the Choir’s outreach: now its singing is heard the world over, through broadcasts and recordings. The Choir has also built up an enviable discography, numbering over one hundred albums, presenting choral music from all corners of the repertory. Indeed, the range of music sung by the Choir is one of its Read more defining features, making involvement in its work particularly rewarding for singers. New College’s label Novum was inaugurated in October 2010. The anthem has always had a special place in the Anglican choral tradition and this new selection from the Choir of New College Oxford, directed by Robert Quinney, celebrates the richness of this repertoire with particular Oxford connections.
