Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge


Geoffrey Webber


‘The desire to evoke the sensation of light was one reason why I became a composer,’ says Julian Anderson. Silverbright and brilliantly focused, the Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge is the ideal choice for this first recording devoted to Anderson’s choral music. From the intimacy of the wedding anthem My beloved spake and ringing clarity of Bell Mass, to the virtuosic second of the Four American Choruses and the extraordinary sound-world conjured by the Nunc dimittis, commissioned specially with this recording project in view, Geoffrey Webber’s singers have lived with this music over a period of around two years before committing it to disc, and their deep sympathy for its marriage of immaculate technique with emotional directness is evident throughout.

‘Singing that impresses with great intensity, accuracy and often quite terrific power’ – Choir & Organ, July/August 2017


This disc offers six short, strong pieces for choir, two of them accompanied by the organ, with an interpolated organ toccata by Frescobaldi, played by [Geoffrey] Webber. ...  I Saw Eternity, to a tiny slice of a Henry Vaughan poem, is five minutes of rapture.  Paul Driver (Classical Album of the Week)
The Sunday Times 19 August 2018
