Clare McCaldin was a passionate and inventive interpreter of these disparate texts (Hugh Wood’s “Beginnings”). Her dramatic punching-out of the word ‘fists’ at the end of the central setting contrasted well with her gorgeous dying fall in the concluding bars of the opening song and the ecstatic, sustained ‘Domine’ which brought the piece to an emotionally satisfying close.
