Valiant for Truth


In 2014, Merton College in Oxford celebrates its 750th year. Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips’ specially conceived programme journeys through three quarters of a millennium of choral repertoire. Not just a demonstration of this accomplished ensemble’s versatility, the recording also provides a bird’s-eye view of some important moments in musical history, and features two composers – John Dunstaple and Lennox Berkeley – associated with the College as well as three works specially commissioned for the anniversary celebrations. The choir, a relatively recent addition to this illustrious college’s complement of treasures, gives stylish and committed performances in the famous acoustic of Merton’s chapel.

'Advent at Merton' [DCD34122] was the best-seller on the Delphian label last Christmas. Gramophone noted "the most notable chapel choir offering" in their Christmas round-up. "All the music is radiant, all of it is unexpected...and comes from a choir that's gone from being a minor player in Oxbridge choral music to becoming one of the most exciting groups in its area". BBC Music Magazine gave it a Christmas Choice, citing "high levels of technical and expressive achievement."

Tracks 1–2, 15–16, 17 & 19 are premiere recordings

“In only a few years the choir has established itself as one of the leading collegiate choirs in the UK. This, its third disc for Delphian, confirms that it is now, surely, one of the jewels in that label’s crown...The singing throughout this programme is superb” MusicWeb International, 12th November 2013

“Though Merton is on the cusp of its 750th anniversary, this choir is a 2006 creation, yet has quickly gained distinction. Here it offers a panorama of world musical history...But it’s the transhistorical stylistic homogeneity of choral singing that comes through.” Sunday Times, 22nd December 2013

The King’s Singers

GRAMMY® Award winners in 2009, The King’s Singers are one of the world’s most celebrated ensembles. Their programming concept in this disc is unique: built upon the individual clauses of The Lord’s Prayer, beginning and ending in plainchant, it ranges over the centuries to explore the spiritually charged text. Chant is at the heart of the programme, and each composer’s setting illuminates the others, shedding rich interpretative light on the poetic and devotional aspects of the prayer.

One of the world’s most celebrated ensembles, The King’s Singers have a packed schedule of concerts, recordings, media and education work that spans the globe. Championing the work of both young and established composers, they are instantly recognisable for their spot-on intonation, impeccable vocal blend, flawless articulation of the text and incisive timing. They are also consummate entertainers: a class act with a delightfully British wit.

“There are few vocal ensembles that can work up a concept album like The King's Singers, and this somewhat disparate collection of sacred pieces blossoms into something rather wonderful...The performances have all the panache that we associate with this group” BBC Music Magazine, December 2012 *****

“what a rewarding CD this is, gloriously sung and perfectly recorded.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012

Music for the Funeral of Queen Mary, 1695: Funeral Sentences


November 1694 was a busy month for Purcell. First, the triumphant return to London of King William III from the campaign in Flanders saw the composer produce a new anthem depicting the vanquishing of the King’s enemies. Secondly, for the celebration of St Cecilia’s Day, composed not the expected ode, but a Te Deum and a Jubilate. The Te Deum is full of grandeur, with the extra trumpets adding some thrilling drama to sections of the work. The scoring is also intimate, with some of Purcell’s most personal music – especially ‘ Vouchsafe, O Lord’, where the piling up of dissonances depicts a cry for mercy remarkable for the period.

These two works are masterpieces in Purcell’s output. However, the triumph was to be short-lived. In December 1694 a smallpox epidemic swept London, and Queen Mary died on 28 December. Purcell produced some of his greatest music for the Funeral Sentences, which he composed for her burial Setting words found in The Book of Common Prayer, Purcell’s music is moving and austere, and the sense of grief is almost palpable. The muted drums and Flatt trumpets in the Canzona leave a lasting impression on the listener. Purcell himself was dead eleven months later, aged 36.
