5.0 out of 5 stars A reviews round-up., 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Excelsis (The Choir Of New College, Oxford & Edward Higginbottom) (Audio CD)
Reviews
"Higginbottom sets out to celebrate affinities between the last years of the pre-Reformation period and the late-20th-century blooming of devotional music. His programme works well as an illustration of this premise and, perhaps more importantly, as a coherent musical unit."
The Gramophone

"The rich tone favoured by New College Choir here works exceptionally well with such liturgical showpieces as Giles Swayne's Magnificat and Jonathan Harvey's Come, Holy Ghost. This disc conveys spiritual values without a trace of soporific monotony. Unmissable."
Classic FM Magazine

"Following the tremendous success of the Gramophone award-winning Agnus Dei album, the Choir of New College Oxford under the musical direction of Edward Higginbottom...celebrate English choral polyphony over the last 500 years. In Excelsis is a deeply moving record that bridges the gap between ritualistic 16th-century composers like John Taverner and 20th-century minimalists like John Tavener and Giles Swayne"
