The Caius to a Baroque Christmas
Gonville & Caius College Choir (dir. Geoffrey Webber) present Charpentier's rarely performed Messe de Minuit pour Noël with the Caius Consort (dir. Rachel Stroud). Alongside the Charpentier which is based on beautiful French noëls, Caius College Choir promises sparkle with baubles by other Baroque masters including Weckmann’s dramatic dialogue for the Annunciation with recorders and violins, Buxtehude’s extended Christmas concerto with its charming refrain telling of the newborn child, and a magnificent Christmas Day motet by Schütz. Between these vocal works we hear some remarkable organ music by Weckmann and an anonymous virtuoso violin sonata on the chorale Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern performed by Rachel Stroud.
