  • Handel: Joy to the World! (John Rutter and the Cambridge Singers)

    Disclaimer: I do not own this! The words are by English hymn writer Isaac Watts, based on Psalm 98 in the Bible. The song was first published in 1719 in Watts' collection; The Psalms of David: Imitated in the language of the New Testament, and applied to the Christian state and worship. Watts wrote the words of "Joy to the World" as a hymn glorifying Christ's triumphant return at the end of the age, rather than a Christmas song celebrating his first coming as a babe born in a stable. Only the second half of Watts' lyrics are still used today. The music was adapted and arranged to Watts' lyrics by Lowell Mason in 1839 from an older melody which was then believed to have originated from Handel, not least because the theme of the refrain (And heaven and nature sing...) appears in the orch...

  • King's College Cambridge 2014 Easter #26 Let all the World Vaughan Williams

    This song, like the other four in the set, is usually performed with the optional chorus and with orchestra. Antiphon, in particular, would not sound nearly as effective without the chorus and with accompaniment reduced to organ. Its exuberance, from the scurrying strings of the opening to the rush of energy from all the forces throughout, yearns for greater expressive range and color. This song shares something in common with the exultant manner of the composer's Festival Te Deum (1937) and the final chorus of Dona Nobis Pacem (1936). Using texts from George Herbert (1593 - 1633), Vaughan Williams fashioned one of his most exuberant vocal/choral creations here, brilliantly capturing the spirit of the metaphysical poet's words. After the energetic opening, the soloist (or soloist and chor...

Cambridge has topped a league table of the world's best universities, with Harvard and MIT ranked second and third. The annual QS World University Rankings remains dominated by US institutions, which took 13 of the top 20 places. There are five British universities in the top 20 -- Oxford ranks fifth, Imperial sixth, UCL seventh and Edinburgh 20th. The only university in the top 20 which is not from the English speaking world is the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, in Zurich, at 18. The highest ranking Asian universities are Hong Kong at 22, Tokyo at 25, and the National University of Singapore at 28. King Saud University, in Saudi Arabia, made the top 200 for the first time. At 200, it was the highest rated institution in the Arab world. It is the second year running that Cambridge University has taken the top spot. Ben Sowter, QS head of research, said: "The gap between Cambridge and Harvard is very small, but Cambridge's superior student/faculty ratio helped tip the balance. Individual attention is one of the key attractions of the Oxbridge tutorial system." Government and private funding for technology-focused research is eroding the dominance of traditional comprehensive universities, compilers of the rankings said. The average age of the top 100 institutions has dropped by seven years since 2010, reflecting the emergence of newer specialist institutions, QS said. Nine UK universities were in the top 50, and 17 in the top 100. Sowter said: "This year's QS rankings show that the worst effects of the funding cuts have yet to be felt by UK universities. "However, pre-emptive redundancies and increased student intake have led to worse student to faculty ratios relative to their international peers. "Of the 37 UK universities in the top 300, 34 fared worse in this measure than in 2010." Tuition fee information has been published for the first time alongside the 2011 world rankings. It suggests that UK higher education is still cheaper compared to many US universities, but other international institutions may offer better value for money. Universities in the Netherlands, including Amsterdam University (63rd place) Utrecht (80) and Leiden (88), are all in the top 100 and offer English-language courses for less than £2,000 per year, QS said. The university rankings are based on a mix of factors including academic reputation, employability of graduates, citations, and the staff-student ratio.

However, Handel did not compose the entire tune. As of the late 20th century, "Joy to the World" was the most-published Christmas hymn in North America.

This song, like the other four in the set, is usually performed with the optional chorus and with orchestra. Antiphon, in particular, would not sound nearly as effective without the chorus and with accompaniment reduced to organ. Its exuberance, from the scurrying strings of the opening to the rush of energy from all the forces throughout, yearns for greater expressive range and color. This song shares something in common with the exultant manner of the composer's Festival Te Deum (1937) and the final chorus of Dona Nobis Pacem (1936). Using texts from George Herbert (1593 - 1633), Vaughan Williams fashioned one of his most exuberant vocal/choral creations here, brilliantly capturing the spirit of the metaphysical poet's words. After the energetic opening, the soloist (or soloist and chorus) enters with the words, "Let all the world in ev'ry corner sing (repeated)/My God and King." Vaughan Williams supplies an ecstatic, vigorous theme and mixes it with contrasting music of subdued but energetic character. After the soloist (or soloist and chorus) sings the final "My God and King," the orchestra rushes to a triumphant close. While the reduced versions of this piece are clearly less compelling than the larger ones, even they will convey the grandeur and exuberance of Vaughan Williams' inspired music. ~ Robert Cummings, Rovi

niversities in the United Kingdom have generally been instituted by Royal Charter, Papal Bull, Act of Parliament or an instrument of government under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992. For new public universities, approval is required from the Privy Council, while private universities may be granted the right to use the title by Companies House. The exact criteria for University title vary between the four countries of the United Kingdom. Degree awarding powers, which are three-tiered and allow the granting of foundation degrees, taught degrees, and research degree, are granted by the Privy Council on the advice of the Quality Assurance Agency.[1]Institutions that hold degree awarding powers are termed Recognised Bodies, this list includes universities, university colleges, colleges of the University of London, higher education colleges, and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Listed Bodies offer courses leading to degrees of a Recognised Body, this includes institutions whose degrees are validated by a recognised body, and the colleges of the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, and the Highlands and Islands. Undergraduate applications to almost all UK universities are managed by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) While legally, University refers to an institution that has been granted the right to use the title, in common usage it now normally includes colleges of the University of London, including in official documents such as the Dearing Report.[2][3] These include a number of institutions that feature regularly in the league tables of the world's top universities, such as UCL, the LSE and King's College London. The central co-ordinating body for universities in the United Kingdom is Universities UK.Ancient universities, Third oldest university in England debate, Red brick university, Robbins Report, Plate glass university, College of Advanced Technology (United Kingdom), and Jarratt report Universities in Britain date back to the dawn of mediaeval studium generale, with Oxford and Cambridge taking their place among the world's oldest universities. No other universities were successfully founded in England during this period; opposition from Oxford and Cambridge blocked attempts to establish universities in Northampton[4] and Stamford.[5] Medical schools in London (i.e., Barts and St Thomas's), though not a university in its own right, were among the first to provide medical teachings in England.[6][7] In Scotland, St Andrew's, Glasgow and King's College, Aberdeen were founded by Papal Bull. Post-Reformation, these were joined by Edinburgh, Marischal College, Aberdeen, and the short-lived Fraserburgh University. In England, meanwhile, Henry VIII's plan to found a university in Durham came to nothing and a later attempt to found a university at Durham during the Commonwealth was successfully opposed by Oxford and Cambridge.[8] Gresham College was, however, established in London in the late 16th century, despite concerns expressed by Cambridge.[9] In Ireland, Trinity College Dublin was founded as "the mother of a University" by a Royal Charter from Queen Elizabeth. The 18th century saw the establishment of medical schools at Edinburgh and Glasgow universities and at hospitals in London. A number of dissenting academies were also established. But the next attempt to found a university did not come until the Andersonian Institute (now Strathclyde University) was established in Glasgow in 1798.
