Notes & Reviews:

In the first recording devoted entirely to Judith Weir's choral music, the Choir of Gonville & Caius explores her evolving relationship with the medium, from her earliest liturgical commission to the most recent, premiered in 2009. Also included in this comprehensive collection are several secular pieces and her two organ works, which are now established classics of the repertoire. The athleticism, intensity, and clarity that are hallmarks of the choir's singing are ideally suited to Weir's strikingly original, approachable, and fascinating music.
