Peace I leave with you - Music for the Evening Hour

Album Description

In their first recording for CORO The Choir of Magdalen College, Oxford, directed by Mark Williams, explore the repertoire that has provided the bedrock of the college’s musical life for the last 500 years.

Much music associated with evening time is naturally calm and soothing, and would satisfy those seeking transcendental beauty in the form of unchallenging ‘sound baths’, but this collection also seeks to challenge, contrasting contemporary settings with music from the 16th century. We hope, through this range of works, to capture something of that liminal space between day and night that is characterised by Evensong, and to lead the listener into that ‘peace that passes all understanding’.
