The St Catharine's Girls' Choir, Cambridge
Edward Wickham (conductor)


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.

Choir and Organ

'The Girls’ Choir of St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, have garnered well-deserved plaudits for the conviction, warmth and immaculate control in their singing under their founder, Edward Wickham. All these qualities are present in abundance on this new disc […] Skempton’s timeless and tireless Five Poems of Mary Webb are a masterclass in triadic writing and should be heard by every serious student of harmony. The balance between the three parts is excellent […] One hopes that this talented group will explore further the riches of the pre-war English repertory.'
Gramophone

'This well-trained choir shines in a contemporary programme anchored by Britten's vivid Friday Afternoons. The premiere recording of Beamish's Seven Songs, settings of Emily Dickinson, is worth hearing'
BBC Music Magazine

'[...] a lovely programme of secular settings for upper voices'
