Info & track listings
This recording, drawn from the working liturgical repertoire of the London Oratory Choir, is framed by two sequences of Benediction music, each concluding with a motet of adoration and humility.
In between, the listener is led through a contemplation of Jesus, the institution of the Eucharist on Maundy Thursday, the sacrifice of Calvary on Good Friday, the risen Paschal Victim, and the great summer celebration of the Eucharistic mystery, the feast of Corpus Christi.
The Choir of the London Oratory is Englands senior professional Catholic choir. Since the London Oratory was established on its present Brompton Road site in 1854, the Oratory Fathers have been noted for the zealous maintenance of their musical establishment and of the proper place of music within the liturgical celebrations for which the Oratory is now internationally famed.
The choir sings at Solemn Mass and Vespers on all the Sundays and great feasts of the year, as well as on many other important occasions, chief amongst them the solemn liturgies of Holy Week and Easter.
