Christmas Carols from Croydon Minster.
NEW: CD “CHRISTMAS CAROLS FROM CROYDON MINSTER”
Christmas is a particularly busy time of year for the Chamber Choir of Whitgift School, and this recording represents a selection of the music sung by the boys and men of the Choir at the annual Whitgift Carol Service at Croydon Minster. The repertoire featured is wide, ranging from the early sixteenth-century carol Personent Hodie, through to O Radiant Dawn by contemporary Scottish composer, James MacMillan. The five carol arrangements for choir, brass, percussion and organ were written by Robert Ampt, the City Organist of Sydney Town Hall, and add to the festive flavour of this carol CD.
Whitgift is very proud of its close partnership with Croydon Minster; the Chamber Choir regularly sings in the splendour of the Minster, and the School provides Choristerships for Whitgift Choristers to sing in the Minster Boys’ Choir. This collaboration has resulted in outstanding choral services and concerts, and this CD is testament to the wonderful choral tradition at both Whitgift and Croydon Minster.
