The small group of teenage sopranos and altos who comprise the Choir of Worcester College, Oxford acquit themselves well in this interesting selection of music. It includes the Missa in Simplicitate by Langlais; an impressive set of Evening Canticles written for the choir in 2017 by Thomas Metcalf, a music scholar at the college; and The Child of Light, a short but atmospheric short depiction of the journey of the Magi by Robert Saxton, Worcester’s Fellow and tutor in music. The chapel organ is heard to great effect in accompaniments and in solo works by Vierne and Langlais.
