This fine disc, which spans a millennium of choral composition, intensifies the shock of the old and the beauty of the new. Works by long-dead Englishmen interlock here with pristine a cappella miniatures by eight living Brits, clearly rehearsed to perfection by Geoffrey Webber and sensitively performed by his young Cambridge choristers. Judith Weir's All the Ends of the Earth and Bayan Northcott's two motets, for example, present strikingly different, yet successful contemporary 'neo-medieval' approaches. Fascinating stuff.
