Directed by Edward Higginbottom

One of the UK's finest, oldest boy choirs (New College was founded in the 14th century), the prolific Choir of New College, directed by the renowned Edward Higgenbottom, presents works from the finest period of English choral polyphony (Cornysh, Ludford, Tallis, Taverner, etc.) are juxtaposed with contemporary compositions by Jonathan Harvey, Giles Swayne and John Tavener, music separated by several centuries but sharing the same quality of deeply charged abstraction. Some of the most beautiful, extensive, full-color liner notes we've seen.
