The Choir's newest recording was released on Friday, with a special Evensong and Reception.

'Deo' features music by Jonathan Harvey, who died in 2012, including 'The Annunciation' which was written especially for the College's Qunincentenary celebrations and was heard as the introit at Friday's service.

Jonathan Harvey’s experience of church music began as a chorister at St Michael’s College, Tenbury, where he sang 13 services each week. He recalled one particular loud chord in a post-service organ improvisation as being a moment of great epiphany in which he knew he would be a composer. I myself was also brought up in the idyllic surroundings of St Michael’s, where my father was Organist in the 1960s. Harvey was later an undergraduate here at St John’s.

Choral singing comes no better
