Hello everyone and welcome to a new post.
My son recently bought a new computer, well he actually built his new computer. Anyway he gave me his old one which is much more powerful than the one I had. While moving everything over from the old to the new computer I came across some things that I forgot I had.
This video is the first of a few that I will be uploading over the next few weeks.
This is a recording session for an album from the New College Choir.
This vocal arrangement was prepared specially for the choir, and features lyrics set to the popular theme from the television programme Inspector Morse.
The album is called ‘Illumina: Music of Light.
Her are the album details:

Inspector Morse, Oxford’s cult television character, is celebrated with Barrington Pheloung’s theme song, for the first time in vocal arrangement by director Edward Higginbottom. The album celebrates choral excellence and follows the fascination of vocal music through the centuries to the present day.

Lyrics to New College Oxford Version of Inspector Morse.
Viasurgat obire tibi
Usque a tergo ventus sit
In agros pluvial cadat
Dum rursus coimus
Deus te sua manu teneat.
Blessed is he, and may ne be blessed
And may he bless us.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine
Warm upon your face.
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
May God hold you in the palm of your hand,
Until we meet again.
