Choir announces new CD 'Christmas with St Johns'

Posted on: 15 September 2016

St John’s College Choir is pleased to announce that Christmas with St John's, a brand new recording of traditional and contemporary music for the Advent and Christmas seasons, will be released this year.

The Choir is well-known for its annual Advent broadcast on BBC Radio Three and the recording includes Michael Finnissy’s John the Baptist, written especially for this service in 2014.

Also featured are Rutter’s Dormi Jesu, Creator of the Stars of Night, composed by another former St John’s organ scholar, John Scott and the traditional carols Ding Dong! Merrily on High and O Little Town of Bethlehem.

This disc forms the second release from the College's exciting new record label (an imprint on Signum), a follow-up the phenomenally successful Deo released earlier this year.

Christmas with St John's will be available as a CD and from all good retailers from October 21 2016.
