Into This World This Day Did Come

Catalogue no: DCD 34075

Price: £13.00 (including postage and packaging)

An intriguing programme in which medieval works illuminate contemporary settings by some of the UK’s finest living composers. From the plangent innocence of Sweeney’s The Innumerable Christ to the shining antiphony of Burrell’s Creator of the Stars of Night, this selection will seduce and enchant. Caius, as we’ve come to expect, combine polish with verve, Webber’s meticulous attention to detail floodlit by the luminous acoustic of St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast.
