Paul Brough writes: “All recordings by collegiate choirs these days seem to require a provenance, so I shall pull together a few facts and figurations to explain what we are trying to do here. We have not tried to give you a lesson in history, liturgy, theology or musicology. We are not attempting to tell you exactly how this music and its accompanying liturgy was performed, though you can be sure that there was yards of antique lace and cloth of gold worn. We have not attempted a liturgical reconstruction – though, we present the music in liturgical order to help accentuate its variety – or a dogmatic representation of the sounds of the scores. We are bringing you the powerful truth of Easter, celebrated in sound by two enthusiastic and devoted groups, in a fusion of what you might have heard in late eighteenth-century Salzburg or Vienna in Austria, and what you are welcome to come and hear in early twenty-first-century Oxford in England. With its choir and chapel services Keble College aims to make itself accessible and approachable, it was founded in 1870 to enable undergraduates from more modest backgrounds to attend The University.”
