Following a critically acclaimed recording of music from the Eton Choirbook, More Divine Than Human (AV 2167), The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford returns with a second volume from the vast collection of 15th-century English sacred music, Choirs of Angels. The works range from John Browne’s richly scored eight-part O Maria salvatoris mater, the first piece in the Eton Choirbook, to William Cornysh’s exquisite miniature Ave Maria mater Dei, the choirbook’s shortest work. The compositional range in the Eton Choirbook demands extraordinary virtuosity from its performers, and Stephen Darlington and his choir of men and boys do this glorious music tremendous justice.

Christopher Price - International Record Review - September 2013


"...The first-class recording was made in the ideal acoustic of Merton College and has been warmly captured by Avie’s excellent engineering team. This is heavenly fare."

Anthony Pryer - BBC Music magazine - August 2013


 "... The boys in particular, sound as they always have under Stephen Darlington, singing with confident, healthily open voices that allow them to ascend through phrases and create a gloriously soaring efect, especially in the magnificent acoustics of Merton College chapel ... it is the mighty nine-part Salve regina by Robert Wylkynson that  stands out on this disc ..."
