Part of the Southend on Sea City Council Concert Series
The 2023 Grammy-nominated British vocal ensemble VOCES8 is proud to inspire people through music and share the joy of singing. Touring globally, the group performs an extensive repertoire both in its a cappella concerts and in collaborations with leading musicians, orchestras, conductors and soloists. Versatility and a celebration of diverse musical expression are central to the ensemble’s performance and education ethos which is shared both online and in person. VOCES8 has performed at many notable venues since its inception in 2005, including performance in London, Paris, Vienna, Tokyo, Mexico, Singapore and Australia.
This wide-ranging recital connects natural and spiritual regeneration, recognising loss, beauty, love, and joy. Music from the Renaissance to the present day comes from England, Germany, Scandinavia, and Iceland as well as the USA and includes jazz standard arrangements. The concert takes its title from a commission for the group by US composer Taylor Scott Davis.
