Video from VOCES8
"An auspicious start to the festival" (Seen and Heard International) We kicked off Live From London Spring with a program of music rooted in nature – from extravagant Elizabethan idylls styled for queen ‘Oriana’, to Alec Roth’s rapt and soaring Stargazer and Kate Rusby’s Underneath the Stars. The center-piece was Jonathan Dove's half-hour song cycle 'The Passing of the Year' for which we were joined by the composer himself at the piano. Here's some of the highlights! "rapturous, overlapping part-singing... lifted the spirits towards a better year ahead.” (The Financial Times) from video introduction
Another wonderful performance of VOCES8!
