Synopsis

Product Description
The Choir of St Catharines College, Cambridge with its director, Edward Wickham, present an exciting recording of extended and little-known Psalm settings by the Franco-Flemish Renaissance composer Claude Le Jeune. Selected from Le Jeunes monumental 'Dodecacorde' collection of Psalms, and giving a fascinating insight into the exquisite French choral music of the late Renaissance, each Psalm is paired with a hymn setting of the same text by Louis Bourgeois harmonised by Claude Goudimel or Le Jeune himself. Framing the recording are hymn versions of the Old Hundredth (Psalm 134) and the Song of Simeon. With musical activities ranging from intimate chamber/consort singing to large-scale choral consorts, from Anglican Evensong to Choral Compline, members of St Catharines College Choir have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of musical activities; and in its role as an ambassador for St Catharine's outside the College walls, the Choirs concerts and recordings, educational and community work, has earned it a reputation for innovation and excellence.
