The Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge explores the fascinating relationship between 16th and early 20th-century music as understood by the pioneers of the Tudor revival in England.

Centred on Byrdís Mass for Five Voices Ė revelatory and inspirational listening for a whole host of composers Ė this mosaic of reworkings, reimaginings and lovingly-crafted homages is brought to life with all the scholarly acumen and full-throated fervour that are the hallmarks of one of Britainís finest choirs.

Caius College Choir is one of the UK's leading collegiate choirs. The 23 singers and two organ scholars, under the direction of Dr Geoffrey Webber, perform a wide range of sacred and secular choral music ranging from the 14th century to the present day.

The day-to-day activities of the choir revolve around Caius Chapel which is probably the oldest purpose-built college chapel in Cambridge still in use.
