The Evening Hour


The Choir of Jesus College Cambridge’s new release on Signum blends a selection of ancient and modern works from the 16th and 20th Centuries, all centred on the theme of evening.

A gorgeous blended sound… the atmospheric singing of the choristers is of a high standard – Early Music Review

The choir have a delicacy and a musical responsiveness that’s particularly suited to this softer-edged programme of evening music – Gramophone

As an unguent to tired limbs, is this gorgeously dreamy recital to the soul: calorific with comfort, it pleases with delightful contrasts, sensitive, sustained singing and shapely interpretations – Choir & Organ

Most enjoyable – Cross Rhythms
