Product description

Product Description

This is the fourth and final themed recording in a series that has confirmed Mertons new choral foundation as one of the UKs leading collegiate choirs. Benjamin Nicholas again draws from the landmark collection of more than fifty-five works written in celebration of the Colleges 750th anniversary. Here, a new work by Judith Weir (newly appointed Master of the Queens Music) heads a set of the four Marian antiphons, all specially commissioned from female composers, while two further premiere recordings represent the work of regular Merton collaborators Gabriel Jackson and Matthew Martin. At the other end of the chronological spectrum, Peter Phillips expert direction of Byrds rarely performed Salve Regina, a bold statement of Catholic faith from Reformation England, and of John Nesbetts late 15th-century Magnificat, a piece whose neglect on disc is astonishing, completes this portrait in sound of a woman who as characterised in Alexandra Coghlans illuminating booklet essay is at once virgin and mother, human and God-bearer, suppliant and Queen of Heaven.

Review

MUSIC WEB INTERNATIONAL RECORDING OF THE MONTH 'Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips have done a marvellous job in training these young singers to such a consistently high standard … This latest disc maintains the very high standards of vocal accomplishment that has come to be the hallmark of their collaboration with Delphian. Furthermore, the programme is as interesting as the previous ones have been with an ideal mix of excellent new music along with more familiar, yet not routine, fare … As for the sound, it seems to me that engineer Paul Baxter definitely has the measure of the wonderful acoustic of the Merton chapel and this recording is beyond reproach.' --John Quinn Music Web International, 12th February 2015

Performance: **** Recording: ***** '[an] intelligent and finely recorded programme ... A firm recommendation' --Terry Blain - BBC Music Magazine, May 2015
