Founded in 1480, the historic traditions and refined sound of the Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford, have proven fertile ground for generations of composers. From the richly inventive and expansive writing of John Sheppard to the mysticism and passion of James Whitbourn's recent settings, this programme celebrates a unique and finely crafted legacy of choral music and sublime singing that flourishes in our time as much as it did in the 15th century. "... an hour of listening that is both of the moment and utterly timeless." (The Independent on the 2013 album Buxtehude: Membra Jesu Nostri) "The interpretations are forthright and plangent, the young soloists spirited..." (The Times on the 2016 album Tomkins: Choral Works)
