Alan Bullards O Come, Emmanuel is an Advent Celebration based on the Great O Antiphons. It is the second of three cantatas for broadly similar forces that Bullard wrote in successive years, the first being Wondrous Cross (2011), recorded by Selwyn College Choir (REGCD404). O Come Emmanuel (2012) is dedicated to Sarah MacDonald and the Chapel Choir of Selwyn College and was first performed, in its complete form, in a service in Selwyn College Chapel on Advent Sunday, 1st December 2013.
The remainder of this disc contains ten new Christmas carols. The dates of the poems that Alan Bullard has chosen to set range from the present day to the distant past, but all tell the same story, beloved of Christians for centuries.
Selwyn College Choir, under the direction of Sarah MacDonald, have gained increasing critcal recognition in recent years, not least for their advocacy of the works of living composers. Their previous CD release The Eternal Ecstasy spent several weeks in the Specialist Classical Charts and was Classicfm Album of the Week in July 2015.
Selwyns performance in Wondrous Cross beautifully exhibits their true charm and reverence. REGCD404 Choral Journal (US)
