Choral Scholars of the Choir of New College Oxford
Departing from their usual haunts of Palestrina, Couperin and Mozart, New Men have released 'Take to the Sky' – a modern medley of close-harmony arrangements. The disc, which was performed and produced by the eight undergraduate members of New College Choir, includes numbers by Take That, Billy Joel, Backstreet Boys and Katy Perry.
"Frankly, it really is terrific fun. The arrangements are clever and focused; the top notes sparkle; and everything is done with tremendous panache. In Oxford, a cappella appears to be having a bit of a moment; the New Men give all you'd expect and a little bit more."
Total Playing time: 40 minutes
Recorded in the Chapel of New College, Oxford, October 2010
Produced and engineered by Benjamin Sheen
Released December 2011
