Reviews

Judith Weir's All the Ends of the Earth present[s a] strikingly different, yet successful contemporary 'neo-medieval' approach. Fascinating stuff.
Andrew Stewart, Classic FM Magazine, 3/1/2006

‘The vibrant relationship between contemporary sacred British choral music and the music of the medieval era’ is what this disc sets out to celebrate, and Judith Weir’s All the Ends of the Earth, the opening selection, vividly illustrates that particular symbiosis. Quotation of Pérotin’s cantus firmus by men’s voices provides a bedrock for newly composed embellishments (altos and sopranos), freshly delivered her by the Gonville and Caius upper voices. Harp and light percussion add deft punctuation, stapling vocal and temporal interactions together into something truly distinctive.
Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine, 3/1/2006
