Old Wine, New Bottles


This disc by Floyd Williams & JANUS illustrates the cross fertilisation of folk/popular and jazz genres that occur in classical music. The original premise was to play early music (14th - 16th centuries) on modern instruments without regard for any historian's "purist" concerns.

Kodaly Missa Brevis


Recorded on their 1997 European tour in Northern Italy and Germany, the Choir of Ormond College sings Kodaly's 'Missa Brevi s' and pieces by Tye, Howell and Bach.

When David heard that Absalom was slain


The Choir of Ormond College specialised in liturgical music of the 16th and 20th centuries. This recording also includes a number of psalm settings, including Allegri's "Miserere", a setting of the penitential Psalm 51 originally used only in the Sistine Chapel during Holy Week.
