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

‘The slickest of the lot… fans of a cappella ought to hear this.’ CD Review, BBC Radio 3

The Passing of the Year sees acclaimed vocal ensemble VOCES8, masterminds of the recent Live from London choral festival, presenting music rooted in nature – from extravagant Elizabethan idylls, styled for their queen ‘Oriana’, to Alec Roth’s rapt, soaring ‘Stargazer’ and Kate Rusby’s ‘Underneath the Stars’. 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, including Caledonia.
