Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

VOCES8 return to disc with this new recording of Bach's Motets, BWV 225-230. Joined by the Senesino Players, this young group proves their versatility and skill in performing some of Bach's most challenging and engaging compositions. This disc follows their a cappella debut disc with Signum earlier this year, Aces High, which features stunning jazz arrangements and songs from the James Bond films.

"The slickest of the lot ... two parts King's Singers, three parts Swingle Singers, a dash of Bobby McFerrin and California sunshine ... fans of a cappella ought to hear this, not just for the singing but the production values and Jim Clements' audacious arrangements." Andrew McGreggor, BBC Radio
