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

Dunstaple:

Missa Rex Seculorum

Ave maris stella

Gloria a 4

Descendi in ortum meum

Speciosa facta es

Veni Sancte Spiritus

Albanus roseo rutilat

Preco Preheminencie

Salve Regina misericordie

Sub tuam protectionem

Specialis virgo


“This disc contains three of Dunstaple's well-known motets – Preco preheminencie, Veni veni and Albanus – but the rest are rarely performed. For some of the delicious antiphons, it's hard to see why: Salve reginamater mire is particularly striking – one of those pieces that sounds far more impressive than it looks on the page. There are also some total novelties. The canonic Gloria was discovered in Russia: it's a massively inventive work that adds a substantial new dimension to our knowledge of Dunstaple. And Descendi in ortum meum, though discovered and published a quarter of a century ago, surely stands as the latest known work of its composer: a magnificent piece that builds an entirely new kind of edifice with the materials of his characteristic style. Most impressive of all, though, is the Mass, Rex seculorum, which ends the disc. This may or may not be by Dunstaple – which is probably why it has never been recorded. Whoever the composer, though, it's a key work in the history of the polyphonic mass cycle, brimming with invention.
The Orlando Consort has a wonderfully forward style that beautifully matches the music and helps the listener to understand why Dunstaple achieved such an enormous reputation on the continental mainland. If they're occasionally a touch rough, these are classic performances that will be hard to challenge.”
