Gaudent in coelis: Choral Music by Sally Beamish, Judith Bingham & Joanna Marsh
The Choirs of St Catharine's College, Cambridge
Edward Wickham (conductor)
Following their crically acclaimed recording of contemporary carols on Resonus (Nova! Nova!), the Choirs of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, have joined together once more to record portraits of three composers to whom they have consistently returned ‒ Sally Beamish, Judith Bingham and Joanna Marsh.
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.
