Haec Dies - Byrd & The Tudor Revival

Haec Dies - Byrd & The Tudor Revival

Type: CD
Subcollection: Choir

Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge
Geoffrey Webber director
Annie Lydford and Nick Lee organ

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 Byrd’s Mass for Five Voices - revelatory and inspirational listening for a whole host of composers - 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 Britain’s finest choirs.

Caius College Choir is one of the UK's leading collegiate choirs. Its members are almost all undergraduates of the College who have been elected into Choral Exhibitions. The twenty-three 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 fourteenth century to the present day, and have developed a niche for reviving neglected repertoires.

The beginning of Advent is celebrated with a particular solemnity at Merton. For its second recording the college choir explores the musical riches that adorn this most special time in the church’s year, centring on a newly commissioned sequence of Magnificat antiphons from seven leading composers.

Founded in 2008, the new Choir of Merton College, Oxford is led by newly appointed Organist and fulltime Director of Music Benjamin Nicholas, and Reed Rubin Director of Music Peter Philips. The choir is rapidly emerging as a major force in collegiate choral music. The disc is recorded in the beautiful environs of Merton College Chapel, which has stood at the heart of the College as a place of worship for almost 750 years.
