'Magnificat' is out today!
Posted on: 25 October 2019
The Choir's new album, Magnificat, is now available to buy, download and stream. Celebrating the Evening Canticles that play a significant part in the Choir's Evensong services, it is an Editor's Choice Pick from Gramophone magazine.
"This disc was recorded at a time when we had an especially fine group of singers," says Andrew Nethsingha, Director of Music. "I think it is one of my two best recordings so far!
"I am fascinated by the way in which the same texts can provoke profoundly different responses from composers. All six pieces are works which the singers have lived with for many years – and for many decades in my case! It is music with which we feel a deep emotional connection. I am excited to share this very fine repertoire with the wider musical world!"
