USA & Canadian Tour 2014
Composers: Byrd, Handel, Mathias, Taverner, Tippett, Vaughan Williams, Walton
This CD, selected from the wealth of music recorded by the choir on the Nimbus label, represents a musical journey, a fitting companion to the physical journey we have made in and around the USA and Canada in 2014. Much of the programme has Christ Church and Oxford connections as a common theme. From Taverner in the sixteenth century, to William Walton in the twentieth century, you will find here a reflection of the glories of the English choral tradition.
