Evensong Live 2016 is a selection of the best weekly webcasts recorded during the preceding academic year (2014-15). Real services at King’s College Chapel are recorded using a state-of-the-art recording system concealed in the roof, vestry and organ loft. Microphones are suspended discreetly above the choir stalls, recording each of the choir’s services and performances.

This album showcases the best performances during the year, as selected by the choir’s Director of Music, Stephen Cleobury, providing a cross-section of the daily music making at King’s, and capturing the atmosphere and acoustic of the Chapel. It serves as a snapshot of the choir at a specific moment in time and presents evensong as one of the jewels of our national heritage: not a relic, but a living and breathing part of our culture. The choir at King’s performs evensong six times a week, in addition to Sunday eucharist or matins, furnishing the liturgy with music on a daily basis. This tradition has fostered many of the greatest choirs, singers and organists in the world.

This selection of music This release joins the label’s other, critically-acclaimed, recordings including: 'English Hymn Anthems', a Gramophone Editor’s Choice; 'Fauré: Requiem', Classic FM Album of the Year 2014; and '1615: Gabrieli in Venice', the first classical album to utilise Dolby’s groundbreaking Atmos technology.

“There are many subtleties in this set of performances. The intimate interplay between the crystalline solo of treble Tom Hopkins and his fellow choristers in Stanford’s Magnificat is one of them … [Highlights include] Twas the year that King Uzziah died, a gripping setting by King’s alumnus George Benjamin, where tenor Toby Ward is an eloquent soloist.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2016 ****

The Choir of Wellington Cathedral (chorus), Andrew Cantrill (director), James Taylor (organ), Alastair Carey (organ)

The Choir of Wellington Cathedral directed by Andrew Cantrill superbly performs choral works of Advent with organists James Taylor and Alastair Carey.

“. . . near the top of the list of leading Anglican choirs. . . . This is a wonderful recording, and I cannot recommend it enough. It makes a very refreshing change from the familiar recording of the Advent Procession in the King's Chapel of Our Land and St. Nicholas in Cambridge. Furthermore, it ably demonstrates that the Wellington Cathedral Choir deserves to be ranked among the finest exemplars of the Anglican choral tradition anywhere in the world. . . . Praetorius's Come thou, Redeemer of the earth. . . is sung to an absolutely stunning new arrangement composed by Wellington Cathedral's former director of music, Philip Walsh. . . . Next come two familiar carols, Vaughan Williams's version of This is the truth sent from above, and Boris Ord's setting of Adam lay ybounden. These are followed by John Rutter's setting of O come, O come, Emmanuel, which combines the traditional 15th-century plainsong melody with some harmonized sections and a very interesting accompaniment with bridge passages that give us an opportunity to hear something of Wellington Cathedral's famous Lewis organ. . . . Probably most people in the USA are not aware quite how popular is . . . Paul Manz's lovely anthem, E'en so, Lord Jesus, quickly come . . . has become throughout the English-speaking world. The choir sings the anthem very expressively and the sopranos "soar" magnificently in the lively acoustics of the cathedral. . . . The recording ends with organist Andrew Carey playing Herbert Howells' Paean as the concluding voluntary, ending on the very impressive sound of the full organ.” Diapason

Fretwork, His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts, Magdalena Consort, Peter Harvey

Leading performers of 17th-century music Fretwork, His Majesty’s Sagbutts and Cornetts and the Magdalena Consort (directed by Peter Harvey) combine forces under the artistic direction of William Hunt for this first complete recording of the consort anthems of Orlando Gibbons. Gibbons’ music is one of the artistic glories of the first Stuart reign. Amongst his sacred compositions, verse anthems such as This is the record of John and Behold, thou hast made my days are long acknowledged masterpieces, amongst the greatest in all English sacred music, but best known to most in their setting for choir and organ. Here they are presented together with an array of other great anthems, some of them scarcely known, in their more intricate and colourful versions for consort accompaniment.Following the instruction of such contemporary writers as Morley and Caccini, these radical new performances place communication of text at the forefront, seeking to rediscover the dramatic essence of the verse anthem that made it arguably the most effective musical creation of the English Reformation. With the incisive declamatory skill of several of the UK’s leading period performers, they reveal the extraordinary rhetorical and poetic power of this music, as it might have been heard in the Chapel Royal and the private domestic chapels of early 17th century England

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

Echo Carol


Every year on Advent Sunday St Paul’s Cathedral in London holds an Advent Carol Service. This recording captures the mood and structure of this event, presenting a selection of the music which might be performed in its liturgical order.

The Church’s preparation for the coming of Christ begins in contemplative mood with the plainchant processional Laudes Regiae and the famous Mattins Responsory (‘I look from afar … ’). The wealth of music that follows is typical of the approach of this choir: traditional favourites such as Hosanna to the Son of David and the Parsons Ave Maria rest alongside contemporary works from composers such as John Rutter, Richard Lloyd and Philip Wilby. This album—and the hypothetical service—comes to an end with a joyous arrangement of the great hymn O come, O come, Emmanuel; an organ toccata on the same theme by Andrew Carter acts as the voluntary.

“This truly rich advent feast is performed wonderfully well on all counts and can be highly recommended” Organists Review

“Fatigue seems to haunt this worthy performance. Stephen Cleobury's deliberate tempos tend to dissolve the impact of the text… - and impede any build-up towards cadential climaxes. Fretwork plays elegantly, but response to the text only listlessly.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2007 ***

“[Fretwork's] presence is the real strength of this disc. Viol playing had been part of musical education since Henry VIII had engaged a viol consort in 1540, and the choristers at Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral would have all received lessons. So, this disc gives us a far better idea of the sound world of these three composers than is often offered on choral anthem collections.” Charlotte Gardner, bbc.co.uk, 16th October 2007

“…the instrumental pieces… are expertly played by the viol consort Fretwork, which also accompanies the verse anthems. The famous choir sings with full-bodied tone and unfailing precision.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2007

“I would happily sit in King's College Chapel listening to this choir sing for the rest of my days.” The Times
