New College Choir CD

Christ's College Choir CD

Today we celebrate the launch of Christ’s College Choir’s new album As A Seed Bursts Forth, devoted to choral music by Christ’s alumna Annabel McLauchlan Rooney (m. 1991). We are delighted to be marking the 40th anniversary of the admission of women to the College with this release, which is also Regent Record’s first ever release debuting the works of a female composer. Regent Records commented “Annabel Rooney writes beautifully crafted and imaginative works in an expressive modern English style, setting traditional texts in an illuminating, colourful, and creative way; a blossoming talent and an original voice.”

Alumni can look forward to learning more about Annabel in the forthcoming edition of Pieces Magazine.
