New album released by College Choir
“One Thing Have I Desired”, the new CD by Exeter’s renowned College Choir, was launched this week. The album is due for commercial release in February, but Old Members can purchase copies directly from Exeter already.
“One Thing Have I Desired” is being released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the magnificent George Gilbert Scott chapel at Exeter. The recording features the College Chapel Choir in a wide range of 20th and 21st-century sacred choral works, including three first recordings and a new commission from Jonathan Dove. The collection celebrates the good gift of the Chapel and the distinguished musical history which it has housed over the last 150 years, as well as exploring the theme of the ‘House of God’.
All proceeds are going into the choir tour fund. If you would like to help support them, and to have the chance to listen to some wonderful music at the same time, do purchase a CD.
The CDs are priced at £10 each, plus £1 for postage and packaging. Please order your CDs from the Development Office – payment can be made by credit card over the phone (01865 279620), or by cheque (payable to “The Bursar, Exeter College” and sent to The Development Office, Exeter College, Oxford, OX1 3DP).
The Chaplain and Choir wish to thank Mr Peter Thompson, Friend of the College, for funding the production of this CD.
