Featuring Seven Songs by Sally Beamish
The St Catharine’s Girls’ Choir, Cambridge, with director Edward Wickham, celebrate ten years since their foundation with this album of works for upper voices.In marking the momentous occasion in 2008 when St Catharine’s created the first college-based girls’ choir, the current choristers of this acclaimed group present a varied programme of secular works from British composers including Britten, Bennett and a world premiere by Sally Beamish.Containing a number of world premiere recordings this album by the innovative College and Girls' Choirs of St Catharine's showcases the great and diverse wealth of recent new choral works, including works specially commissioned for the Choirs of St Catharine's by Beamish (St Catharine's Service) and Marsh (Missa Brevis: Collegium Sanctae Catharinae). Also included are a selection of Judith Bingham's choral re-imaginings - thought-provoking meditations that each segue into the famous choral work on which they are based.
