28 VOCES8 Eventide

, Start Time: 22:00 St Magnus Cathedral Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX

The pleasures in their soft robes fly
With angel wings adown the sky,
And rapture lulls to sweet repose,
At eventide.

Voces8 has quickly won an international reputation as one of the UK’s finest and most versatile ensembles. Here they present a programme based on Eventide inspired by the words of the American poet Freeman E. Miller. From Renaissance polyphony to spirituals to Allegri’s famous Miserere this concert is one of reflection whose centerpiece is a beautifully simple gift in musical form by the Festival’s founder Peter Maxwell Davies.
