The Choir of Merton College is of course not the first group to do this, but the idea has been worked out unusually well here: there are newly commissioned pieces about Mary, all of them from female composers and displaying a fascinating variety of perspectives, and the choir's pair of conductors are seemingly given the chance to follow their own leads. The focus is naturally on the newer music, but the version of Byrd's Salve Regina led by veteran conductor Peter Phillips seems to stand at the center of the whole program.

In 2014, Merton College in Oxford celebrates its 750th year. For this disc, Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips have created a program that journeys through three quarters of a millennium of choral repertoire. Not just a demonstration of this accomplished ensemble's versatility, the recording also provides a bird's-eye view of some important moments in musical history, and features two composers - John Dunstaple and Lennox Berkeley - associated with the college as well as three works specially commissioned for the anniversary celebrations

The Marian Collection Choir of Merton College, Oxford. Benjamin Nicholas again draws from the landmark collection of more than fifty-five works written in celebration of the College’s 750th anniversary. Here, a new work by Judith Weir (newly appointed Master of the Queen’s Music) heads a set of the four Marian antiphons, all specially commissioned from female composers, while two further premiere recordings represent the work of regular Merton collaborators Gabriel Jackson and Matthew Martin. Benjamin Nicholas and Peter Phillips have done a marvellous job in training these young singers to such a consistently high standar. his latest disc maintains the very high standards of vocal accomplishment that has come to be the hallmark of their collaboration with Delphian.
