The College Choir has recorded a new CD of music for the festive season, which is now available to buy in College from Director of Music David Maw.

The CD, Lumen de lumine: Music for the Christmas Season, was recorded at the end of Hilary Term last year, and features twenty-three tracks of seasonal choral music, including some classic carols.

College members can purchase copies of the CD from David Maw (david.maw@oriel.ox.ac.uk) for £10 per copy (cash or cheque made payable to Oriel College). For £15, you can buy one copy each of Lumen de lumine and A Celebrtion of Candlemas, which was recorded by the Choir in 2007.

Those not based in College can order a copy online via OxRecs Digital for £10.95 including postage and packaging.

There will be a launch event in College from 4pm - 5.15pm on Friday 24th November, and College members are welcome to join Director of Music David Maw and members of the Choir for mulled wine and mince pies in the Large SCR (soft drinks will also be available).
