Join VOCES8 for their seasonal programme “Lullabies to an Infant King” as they perform for the first time in the Temple Church. Singing from different locations around the building the audience will be enveloped by music from over 400 years in repertoire chosen from their “Winter” and “Christmas” albums. They sing music from Olafur Arnalds, Francis Pott, Britten, Rachmaninov, Praetorius, as well as a recent commission by Philip Stopford. They also perform music from principle arranger Jim Clements and from current composer-in-residence Jonathan Dove.
