‘Unfading Splendour’ is the new album from the mixed-voice Chapel Choir of Worcester College, Oxford and features works by 20th-century composers such as Herbert Howells, Henry Harris, Edward Bairstow, John Ireland and Charles Villiers Stanford.

The mixed choir enjoys performing a wide range of repertoire, including the promotion of lesser-known repertoire. In recent years it has been known for its dedication to contemporary music, and to its performances and recordings of music by living composers and student composers.

The choir is directed by the Director of Chapel Music, Thomas Allery, and accompanied by the undergraduate organ scholars who are reading for degrees in music. In addition to its commitments in the chapel each week during the university term, the mixed choir enjoys an increasingly busy schedule of concerts, recordings, and tours. Recent highlights have included performances at St Martin in the Fields, St John’s Smith Square, and at the Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy and broadcasts on live radio on the BBC Daily Service and on Sunday Worship.
