Synopsis

Product Description
Breaking stereotypical expectations of a seasonal album, Voces8s new release Winter paints a portrait of the season through a sparse and powerful aural landscape, invoking a meditative, inspiring feeling of solitude and union .

A contemporary reflection on the serene restfulness of winter. Eight exceptional voices are joined by sibling duo Mari & Hakon Samuelsen (violin & cello) and other guests, taking inspiration from composers from Estonia, Latvia, Norway, Iceland and elsewhere.

Includes four world premiere recordings, notably a brand new work Winter, written exclusively for the album by award-winning composer Rebecca Dale.

Featuring significant new arrangements of For Now I Am Winter (Olafur Arnalds), Come Wander With Me (Jeff Alexander), and the folk tune The Snow It Melts The Soonest (previously covered by Sting), plus re-imaginings of established melodies such as Praetorius - Es ist ein Ros entsprungen (arr. Jan Sandström) and Holsts In The Bleak Midwinter (arr. Ola Gjeilo) .
