Boys Air Choir Singing " Bluebird" <--Amazing

An album of music to pacify the age of anxiety
The Choir of New College Oxford
Capricorn Ensemble

directed by Edward Higginbottom

Decca 466 870-2

Recorded in New College Chapel, Oxford
Playing time : 76'32" DDD


"This famous choir now has a history (albeit a fairly recent one) of putting together programmes likely to have a wider appeal than those devoted to a single composer or to music for the Anglican liturgy. This new recording takes its title from Stanford's imaginative and readily memorable setting of The Blue Bird... The various pieces follow one another smoothly, with scarcely a break in sound or disruption of the pervasive tranquillity. Performances are fine: choral tone and balance sensitively controlled, with forms of accompaniment nicely varied to include harp and strings as well as organ."
