The Choir of Newman College Recordings:
“Luceat lux vestra” Centenary Recording (1918-2018)
To celebrate the College’s one-hundredth year, the Choir of Newman College has made a beautifully-produced Centenary recording. Taking its title from the College’s motto, ‘Let your light shine’, the recording brings to prominence music written over the last five-hundred years for Jesuits courts, institutions and chapels, and settings of texts by Jesuit poets and John Henry Newman, the theologian after whom the College is named. Featured on the recording are anthems and motets by Palestrina, Charpentier, Rameau, Zelenka, Benjamin Britten, Edward Elgar and Christopher Willcock, several recorded for the first time.
“Behind Closed Doors”
The Choir of Newman College’s first commercial CD recording, features music written and sung under the increasing threat of persecution in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. The Choir is accompanied by the Australian viol ensemble, Consort Eclectus, and the College Organist, David Macfarlane.
