St Matthew’s Choir CD: My Lord Has Come

   

The first CD recording of St Matthew’s Choir for over 15 years was released on St Matthew’s Day, 21 September 2013, at the evening concert. The disc, which is music for Advent and Christmas, includes many well-known pieces of music and some which will probably be new to most listeners. Included are the much-loved ‘Congregational’ carols O come, O come, Emmanuel, Hark! the herald angels sing and O come all ye faithful which are contrasted with a contemporary setting of Christina Rosetti’s In the bleak mid-winter by Bob Chilcott and a rip roaring arrangement of Ding dong! merrily on high. Also represented, through Richard Rodney Bennett’s carol Sweet was the song, is

St Matthew’s Church proud and distinguished history of commissioning works of new music and art. This particular work is from a set of five carols that Bennett penned for the church in 1967, some of which found national recognition through being published in the famous Carols for Choirs series.

The disc represents the years since the choir’s re-founding with girl and boy choristers and adult Altos, Tenors and Basses, and the hard work which has taken place under the present Director of Music and his two predecessors to establish the choir at the forefront of church music in this country.

Ably supported by Thomas Moore on the renowned 1895 Walker Organ and with the choir directed by Stephen Moore, this disc is a great opportunity to support the music making at St Matthew’s and to hear the choir in your own living room! The CD, which is priced at £10 per copy, is available through the church at all concerts and recitals, or by contacting the Director of Music directly on
01604 791251 or music@stmatthews-northampton.org.uk.
