Explanation

Carte Blanche for New Music

What a match! The end of summer afternoon, a stunning location and the near-perfect sound of VOCES8 from the UK. During our Heavenly Hour-series you get just that: an inspiring break from the clamour of the outside world with the most blissful ensemble singing there is.

VOCES8, the internationally renowned and award-winning vocal ensemble treats us to its newest repertoire and some favourite pieces. Some of the programme will feature Dutch premières of newer music. “Music can’t renew itself if we only perform the great works of the past” says Barnaby Smith, counter tenor and the group’s leader. “That’s why we commission and sing new compositions, like ‘The Passing of the Year’, written for us by composer in residence Jonathan Dove.” The rest of this Heavenly Hour will be a surprise, he says. Sit back, listen, enjoy.
 
Other possibilities to admire VOCES8 are:
-       5 July in the Grote or St. Bavo Church, together with Codarts Dance
-       6 July during the amateur singers master class*
* This masterclass is fully booked.
