DCD34075 Into This World This Day Did Come
Into this world this day did come © Delphian Records

Choir of Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge
Geoffrey Webber director
David Ballantyne & Matthew Fletcher organ


Fresh from their 2009 Gramophone Editor’s Choice, Webber’s choir has put together an intriguing programme in which medieval works illuminate contemporary settings by some of the UK’s finest living composers. From the plangent innocence of Sweeney’s The Innumerable Christ to the shining antiphony of Burrell’s Creator of the Stars of Night, this selection will seduce and enchant. Caius, as we’ve come to expect, combine polish with verve, Webber’s meticulous attention to detail floodlit by the luminous acoustic of St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast.

Praise for Caius on Delphian:
‘ glittering precision … marvellous choral sheen’
— International Record Review, June 2009

‘ Geoffrey Webber’s choir sings with greater passion than most of its Oxbridge rivals’
— Classic FM Magazine
