Elizabethan melancholy was the first manifestation of the discovery of somber night. It is also the starting point for Voces8 on their breathtaking journey through the songs and sounds of night. British from top to toe, the eight singers from London pay tribute to Tallis and Gibbons as well as Whitacre and Emeli Sandé, but they also do justice to evergreens, soul and samba. Van Morrison’s “Moondance” definitely has more to say and sing about the night than the Renaissance does.
Introductory talk in the foyer at 7.40 pm
