Angels have inspired flights of brilliance for millennia from musicians, poets and writers. Expect some divine intervention as the impeccable British vocal ensemble VOCES8 unite with Rachel Podger, the ‘queen of the Baroque violin’.

Podger’s serene and beguiling playing is an angelic guiding voice as VOCES8 sing choral masterpieces, including a new commission by Owain Park. This innovative, and meditative programme, will transform the space and acoustics of St Wilfrid’s, for a truly illuminating experience. A little bit of heaven falls to earth.

Programme to include works by Bach, Mendelssohn and Rachmaninov.

“VOCES8 are undoubtedly gifted.” – The Times

“With her warm, resiny sound, expressive command of rhythm and gift for drawing melodic lines of alpine crispness, Ms. Podger can be entrusted with just about anything.” – New York Times

This event is included in our Library of Live scheme.
