SJV is currently working towards the release of their second disc, of music by the neglected master Pavel Chesnokov. The disc will be available in May 2023 on the Naxos Label
Our first CD, of music by William Mathias, was released in January 2020
Our first professional recording, featuring music by William Mathias, was made in March 2019 in the College Chapel. This disc presents familiar and less well-known material alongside two first recordings: Riddles, a setting of texts from the Exeter Book of Riddles, was written for SATB choir, piano, bells and close-harmony sextet (the Gentlemen of St John's, on our recording); Learsongs sets five poems by Edward Lear for SA chorus and piano duet, in music by turns quirky, nostalgic, tuneful, achingly sad and hugely entertaining.
