Time and Eternity (2000)Time and Eternity (2000)

Our millennium CD contains music chosen for services in the college chapel during the academic year 1999-2000.

The theme of each service (and thus the music selected) was based around the subject of "Time and Eternity". The recording starts by remembering the events leading up to Christ's birth, and continues with Christmas itself. It goes on to reflect on the passage of twenty centuries and on what is still to come: that is, the inevitability of each soul's journey from this world.
