The Choir of Ormond College LIVE / Directed by Douglas Lawrence
Ormond College is the largest residential college for The University of Melbourne and its very own choir, the Choir of Ormond College turned 21 in 2002. The choir has also toured internationally every two years, visiting New Zealand, Japan, Britain and most of Europe.
Having been associated with the choir since its inception, Move Records is delighted to celebrate the choir's musical "coming of age" and present this special live retrospective CD featuring many past and recent performances previously unreleased on the label - including Benjamin Britten's ambitious and rarely heard Festival Te Deum.
Includes a special 20 page colour retrospective booklet complete with photos from the choir's many tours and special comments from Melbourne critic Clive O'Connell and the Chaplain of Ormond College.
