Worcester College Choirs

Choir Schools Today (2004)
"Worcester College is another University institution which fields an extremely good choir. The boys in the Ireland are wonderfully expressive. Weelkes Ninth Service is sung by the mixed choir as is Locus Iste by Bruckner and they do so with assured stylistic confidence. It is a fine recording and gives much pleasure."
