Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"Many of the works were written within the last five or six years, and in keeping with the "theme" of the program, each of the new compositions has some connection to medieval forms and styles, be it structural, harmonic, melodic, textual, or some combination... The Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge is impressively at home in this consummately difficult repertoire, making as good a case for both the original medieval works and the modern ones as we could wish for." -Classics Today (9/9)
