‘The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.’ Gramophone Magazine

The Passing of the Year sees acclaimed vocal ensemble VOCES8 presenting music rooted in nature – from extravagant Elizabethan idylls, styled for their queen ‘Oriana’, to a set of Monteverdi madrigals in which an Arcadian shepherd pines for a nymph.

The programme title comes from Jonathan Dove’s superb song cycle which evokes the beauty and mystic power of the changing seasons and describes the triumph of nature’s perpetual cycle. The composer himself will accompany VOCES8 on the piano.

Also included are folksong arrangements describing the beauty of the landscape.
