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.
