The sound of this UK-based vocal octet is so distinctive it can be recognised across almost any genre. VOCES8 are among a small handful of a capella ensembles that can justifiably be labelled the best in the world, with several critically acclaimed albums released on the Decca Classics label.

In this eclectic program, VOCES8 weave a tapestry of the history of vocal music, encompassing everything from Renaissance polyphony to Bach, Mendelssohn and Rachmaninov, right through to Simon & Garfunkel, Van Morrison and Duke Ellington.
