The Choir of Merton College joins forces with the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra for a recording of director Benjamin Nicholasís favourite popular carols. Two of John Rutterís most exquisite works are complemented by orchestral versions of well-loved traditional fare. From the ecstatic brass fanfares that introduce O come, all ye faithful and Hark! the herald angels sing to the intimate performances of Elizabeth Postonís beautiful Jesus Christ the apple tree and Morten Lauridsenís O magnum mysterium, Christmas old and new is celebrated with a fresh sense of all its magic and glory. The choir and orchestra loved making this recording, and it shows. The choir and orchestra loved making this recording, and it shows.

Just nine years since it was established, the Choir of Merton College has earned a reputation as one of Oxfordís leading mixed-voice choirs. In addition to its regular services, the choir often appears in London, at St Johnís Smith Square and Cadogan Hall, and makes frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio 3. This is its sixth recording on Delphian and the first with orchestra.
