      Choir of Merton College, Oxford / Peter Phillips & Benjamin Nicholas; Anna Steppler, organ

      The beginning of Advent is celebrated with particular solemnity at Merton College. For its second recording, the choir explores the musical riches that adorn this most special time in the church’s year, centering on a newly commissioned sequence of Magnificat antiphons from seven leading composers. The album was recorded in the beautiful environs of Merton College Chapel, which has stood at the heart of the College for almost 750 years.
