Our first recording experience
It’s been over a week now since we finished our first recording project with the Choir of New College, Oxford, but it was an experience that is still fresh in our memories, even though we’ve all been away and immediately occupied with other projects!
The project saw a collaboration between the singers of the New College choir and twelve Oxford Baroque players, directed by Edward Higginbottom – Professor of Choral Music at the University of Oxford, and Director of New College Choir. Together, we recorded three works by the French composer, Marc-Antoine Charpentier. Active at the end of the seventeenth century and into the first few years of the eighteenth, Charpentier was one of the most influential composers in consolidating the French Baroque style, being both incredibly versatile and highly inventive.
