Voces8

Featuring music from Radiohead (Pyramid Song), Enya, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.

New arrangements of Scottish and Irish melodies sit alongside compositions set to texts by some of the greatest English poets.

Music originally written for film or television is reimagined to create sonorities reminiscent of watercolour landscapes or carefully chiselled sculpture.

Enchanted Isle casts a contemporary eye on the landscape of rolling hills and green valleys, rugged mountainsides and hidden villages.

The second single on this album features Sibéal.

"The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word 'ensemble' with meticulous timing and tuning." Gramophone
