The Choir of Girton College, Cambridge
Historic Brass of the Royal Academy of Music (Jeremy West, leader)
Lucy Morrell (organ)
Gareth Wilson (director )

Manuel Cardoso (1566–1650) was one of the most important composers of the golden age of Portuguese polyphony around the turn of the seventeenth century. But modern choirs have been surprisingly slow to explore the rich legacy of his compositions: this is the first recording of his Missa Secundi Toni, and the first of any of his works with brass consort, its dark colours providing an effective contrast with the young voices of the Girton College Choir.

Gareth Wilson studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and Edinburgh University and at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He became a Fellow there, and subsequently lecturer, in Academic Studies between 2000 and 2004. At the same time, he joined the Music Department at King’s College London (KCL) and, in 2012, was appointed an academic professor at the Royal College of Music. In 2014 he was appointed Acting Director of the Chapel Choir of KCL. Gareth was appointed Director of Chapel Music and Bye-Fellow at Girton College in the University of Cambridge, where he is also a member of the Music Faculty, in the summer of 2015. He also lectures for the Royal College of Organists, works as a freelance choral conductor, is Director of Music at Christ Church, Chelsea, and is a composer.

Girton College Chapel Choir has gained an impressive reputation as one of the most distinguished mixed-voice choirs at the University of Cambridge. As an international prize-winning ensemble comprising around 26 students, it has built its reputation through regular choral services in Girton College chapel and frequent performances in parish churches and cathedrals across the UK. Choir members are all undergraduate or graduate students at Cambridge University. The choir has sung for the United Nations, as specially approved by the then Secretary General Kofi Annan, for the Duke of Edinburgh, the late Queen Mother, and the late Pope John Paul II.
