The group's most recent release, ACES HIGH, is a scintillating collection of VOCES8's unique interpretations of jazz and pop favourites and theme tunes from the legendary James Bond movies and is on general release on the Signum Classics label. The group's latest release on the Signum label is a collection of motets by J. S. Bach.

Notable London appearances include the Royal Festival Hall, the Wigmore Hall, Alexandra Palace, Kings Place, and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. VOCES8 broadcasts regularly on international television and radio, including live recordings for Deutschlandradio Kultur and Radio France Musique.

Gabriel's Message : SSAATTBB : Jim Clements : Voces8 : Sheet Music : EP72225

Jim Clements : Gabriel's Message

This arrangement of the well-known Basque carol was among the first to be written for us by our Arranger-in-Residence, Jim Clements. Mixing sonorous choral chords with soft accompanying lines, this setting finds both the glory and humility of the Angel's appearance to the Virgin. Such is the popularity of the arrangement that it has always formed an important part of the group's seasonal programming and is recorded on ouralbum, 'Christmas'.

Thomas Hewitt-Jones : Shenandoah

This beautiful folk song was commissioned as part of our fifth anniversary celebrations in 2012, and was included in our EP 'In the Beginning' and on our US concert tour. It has always been a fun challenge to perform, with gorgeous flowing lines and a great opening solo for the bass.

This Ember Night : SSAATTBB : Graham Lack : Voces8 : Sheet Music : EP11519

Graham Lack : This Ember Night

The composer's poem is based on the early 15th Century Middle English carol 'This Endris Night', that is cast as a discourse between Mary and the infant Jesus, where her lament alternates with his responses on what the future holds. In the arrangement the sacred meaning is combined with the secular tradition of Ember Days, so that it is not clear whether the poem is religious or secular, nor if the poet is expressing personal belief or musing on the passing of the year. The composition worked so wonderfully with the themes of the VOCES8 album, 'Equinox'.
