VOCES8

Join astonishing international a cappella favourites Voces8 in a celebration of singing, with music ranging from the renaissance right up to the modern day. The programme includes the world premiere of Vertue, a brand new work by Jonathan Dove commissioned specially for this Festival, setting words by George Herbert, the Rector of Bemerton, described as “a most glorious saint and seer.” The composer will also accompany these eight exceptional singers in his song-cycle The Passing of the Year, which they recorded with him.

Commissioned by Wiltshire Creative and Lichfield Festival for Voces8.
