New CD 'Deo' wins five star review in The Observer

Posted on: 3 May 2016

Observer reviewer Fiona Maddocks has awarded the Choir's new CD 'Deo', choral music by Jonathan Harvey, five stars in a review published on Sunday.  

Calling the disc 'ecstatic' and 'richly challenging', Maddocks draws attention to the close links between Harvey and the College, and also the parallels between the lives of the composer and Director of Music Andrew Nethsingha.

The recording, which is the first on the new St John's College label, an imprint on Signum, comes out on 20 May, but can be pre-ordered now by clicking here
