New Canticles by Nico Muhly given first performance

Posted on: 31 May 2016

The Choir was proud to give the first performance of the 'St John's Service' by Nico Muhly on Sunday 29 May.

Described by The Guardian as “one of the most celebrated and sought-after classical composers of the last decade” Muhly has written for the Metropolitan Opera and Wigmore Hall and for the Hillard Ensemble and Tallis Scholars.

This new work for St John's represents the continuation of the Choir's dedicated commitment to new music and to enriching the liturgical choral repertoire.

It was commissioned by the Master and Fellows of the College with generous support from Michael McLaren QC and Caroline McLaren.
