VOCES8 - Eventide

The new release from one of our most exciting and versatile vocal groups. Album of the Weekend, 8-9 February 2014.

The repertoire of vocal group VOCES8 ranges across the centuries - from Renaissance music to jazz and pop arrangements. 

This album came in at No.12 in Classic FM's Album of the Year 2014. See the full chart here > 

For their debut album on the Decca label, the mood is determinedly ethereal to suit the title, Eventide. There are enchanting modern arrangements of ancient latin hymns as well as contemporary classics - including John Williams' Hymn to the Fallen from Saving Private Ryan, Eric Whitacre's The Seal Lullaby and Morten Lauridsen's O Magnum Mysterium

All of the eight voices blend together exquisitely to haunting and beautiful effect and the repertoire is perfectly chosen.
