Product Description


technical comment

  • Led by Mark Williams, the Choir of Jesus College, Cambridge continue their critically-praised series of recordings on Signum with this new recording of works by British composers Benjamin Britten and William Byrd.
    Although their respective careers separated by 350 years, they shared one very significant characteristic: both were outsiders. As a devout Catholic Byrd was obliged to pursue a kind of double life, expressing his spiritual exile in music of emotional intensity. Like Byrd, Britten became highly regarded for his artistic achievements, but reservations regarding his homosexuality and pacifism prevented his complete acceptance by the establishment; both made him an outsider.
    The choir's sixth release on Signum, previous discs by the Choir of Jesus College, Cambridge have drawn near universal praise from critics.
