We are delighted that ArkivMusic are currently featuring one of the choir’s recent releases, The Door To Paradise. Greetings and thanks to our many kind friends and supporters in North America!
Please see the ArkivMusic website for further details.
The Door to Paradise celebrates Stephen Darlington’s legacy as Director of Music at Christ Church and brings together all five volumes of the choir’s recordings of works from the Eton Choirbook, a collection of English sacred music from the early Renaissance. The title of this release derives from a dual meaning: the “door to paradise” is the English translation of a line from John Browne’s setting of O regina mundi clara, while the cover image of the box-set features the “Alice Door” between the Deanery and Cathedral Gardens of Christ Church, featured in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
