The Merton Collection CD
The Merton Collection - Merton College at 750.
In 2014, the University of Oxford’s Merton College celebrates its 750th year. Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips’ specially conceived journey through seven centuries of choral repertoire provides a bird’s-eye view of some important moments in musical history, and feature two composers personally 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.
