Chapel Choir Recordings

Univ is proud to announce the release of the Chapel Choir's new CD.

Dayspring Bright is a collection of music specific to the Advent season, featuring carols which form the musical backbone of the yearly Advent Carol services at Univ. The disc includes old favourites like In the Bleak Midwinter, O Come, O Come Emmanuel and Benjamin Britten's A Hymn to the Virgin, as well as some more modern carols by composers such as Sally Beamish and Alexander Campkin. We are also delighted to have been able to record a carol by old member, Jonathan Lane (1977) - a setting of the mediaeval text, There is no Rose of Such Virtue.

Priced at £10, Dayspring Bright is available for purchase at the Lodge.

The Chapel Choir is directed by Giles Underwood and the recordings feature organists Christopher Breeze, Alice Habisreutinger and Stella Kremer. Featuring almost an hour of seasonal music, Dayspring Bright includes:

This is the Truth Sent From Above
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
Adam Lay Ybounden
I Sing of a Maiden
Ave Maris Stella
A Hymn to the Virgin
Hills of the North, Rejoice

This Dayspring Bright marks the beginning of a recording project highlighting the Chapel Choir's singing of seasonal music. The next disc will contain music for Lent and is planned to be both recorded and released in 2017.
