VOCES8 will make its debut at the BBC Proms in a lunchtime concert Cadogan Hall on 22nd July. This year’s Monday-lunchtime “Proms at … Cadogan Hall” series takes listeners through over 800 years of musical history over the course of just eight concerts. The group’s programme ranges from the supple chant melodies of Hildegard of Bingen to the sophisticated choral polyphony of Palestrina and William Byrd. It will also include the wonderful “Vadam et circuibo civitatem” by current composer-in-residence Jonathan Dove, and a world premiere by Alexia Sloane called “Earthward”.
