Notes & Reviews:

It was with typical discernment that Geoffrey Webber, director of the Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, responded to a request to put together his dream Christmas collection. Opening with Jan Sandström's sublime deconstruction of Es ist ein Ros entsprungen, Webber's classy choir reveals and delights in equal measure, finding space for both the Venetian lushness of Gabrieli and the distilled purity of Webern in a seasonal collection which is also sprinkled with unexpected gems of more recent provenance.
