Saturday 13 February at 7.00pm – live stream
As part of the London Spring Festival
The Passing of the Year
The programme sees VOCES8, hosts of ‘Live from London’ 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 world around us.
