Info for Eventide

Decca is delighted to announce that VOCES8, one of Britain’s most dazzling vocal ensembles, has joined its roster of artists. The thrilling young singers of VOCES8 combine terrific energy and charisma with immaculate vocal blend, breaking down barriers between music as diverse as Tallis, Bruckner and Emeli Sandé.

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.

Critics have showered VOCES8 with praise, celebrating their “radiant” and “luminous” sound, “imaginative theatricality” and spotlighting their “impressive stage presence”. VOCES8 make their Decca debut with the release of Eventide in early 2014, an exquisite album exploring the magical time between day and night, including original compositions and freshly arranged pieces spanning five centuries and all rooted in reflection and repose. Eventide’s rich sonic blend is frequently combined with haunting solo instrumentals from saxophone, cello, and harp and is sure to appeal to the discerning listener who enjoys music with gorgeous sound and spiritual meaning.

Voces8 are:
Andrea Haines, soprano
Emily Dickens, soprano
Chris Wardle, countertenor
Barney Smith, countertenor
Sam Dressel, tenor
Oliver Vincent, tenor
Paul Smith, bariton
Dingle Yandell, bass
