Decca is delighted to announce that VOCES8, one of Britain’s most dazzling vocal ensembles, has joined its roster of artists. The thrilling young singers of VOCES8 combine terrific energy and charisma with immaculate vocal blend, breaking down barriers between music as diverse as Tallis, Bruckner and Emeli Sandé.

Critics have showered VOCES8 with praise, celebrating their “radiant” and “luminous” sound, “imaginative theatricality” and spotlighting their “impressive stage presence”. VOCES8 make their Decca debut with the release of Eventide in early 2014, an exquisite album exploring the magical time between day and night, including original compositions and freshly arranged pieces spanning five centuries and all rooted in reflection and repose. Eventide’s rich sonic blend is frequently combined with haunting solo instrumentals from saxophone, cello, and harp and is sure to appeal to the discerning listener who enjoys music with gorgeous sound and spiritual meaning.

“Pitch-perfect harmonies, in dreamily sumptuous sonics.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2014 ***

“The singing of Voces8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance, and the sopranos preserve the vocal line when necessary by not using strong consonants. They bring a new dimension to the word 'ensemble' with meticulous timing and tuning without a conductor...This is easy listening of the higest calibre, beautifully recorded.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2014

Choir of St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh & RSAMD Brass, Duncan Ferguson

Following their highly acclaimed recording of the 16th-century John Taverner, Duncan Ferguson and his Edinburgh choir turn their attention to one of the 19th -century's compositional giants. This sequence of motets among them several little-known gems are a testament to Bruckner's profound Catholic faith and these performances blaze with fire and fervour in the vast cathedral's icy acoustic.

“within seconds you are hooked...you are listening to a choir of humans who sing like angels...pitching in with total commitment at every possible dynamic level from fortissimo to the whisper of dulcet prayer...[the tenors] are remarkably healthy; while the basses have the kind of deep vigour mostly associated with Russian voices. What’s in Scotland’s water, vodka?” The Times, 25th March 2011

“These motet performances...are thrillingly homogenous, conveying well the unifying purpose of the works, but also the ecstatic quality that pervades the mighty Ecce sacerdos and the quiet affirmation of Locus iste.” The Scotsman, 5th April 2011

“Ferguson’s singers are beyond reproach; intonation is never less than perfect and the sound made at full stretch is glorious – higher lines piercingly clear thanks to the cathedral’s choristers singing the soprano parts. We also get the two Aequale for three trombones, played here with sombre magnificence. Brilliant.” The Arts Desk, 16th April 2011

“This performance is just superb. It's the kind of disc you want to turn up to full volume and lose yourself in, whether you're of a religious bent or not. Through their crisp, measured phrases, limpid textures, and their reverent but never syrupy tone, they've captured the simplicity and humility of both texts and music...This is a disc to be revisited and savoured again and again.” bbc.co.uk, 8th April 2011

“There's plenty of drive and commitment to this performance, which adds a sense of spiritual relevance beyond the solely musical...the overall effect is surprisingly uplifting thanks to the clarity and directness of the performance, helped by the cathedral's wonderful acoustic.” Classic FM Magazine, June 2011 ****

“this is Bruckner performed with no holds barred, but instead sung with passionate conviction and raw energy - there is nothing remotely polite about MacBruckner...you cannot but be aware of Bruckner's originality, and command of texture and sonority: can the art of modulation ever have been bettered? To hear this marvellous music given with such urgency and all-out commitment is a remarkable experience.” International Record Review, May 2011

“The Edinburgh singers perform with a robust though polished fervour. Alto, tenor and bass lines are beyond reproach, while the mixed-sex treble line copes admirably with exposed writing. The recorded sound is first-class, capturing both voices and instruments (including some excellent organ-playing) with an engaging immediacy.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2011

“The Edinburgh choristers (a mix of boy trebles and girls) are fearless in confronting Bruckner’s demands...This is an excellent disc. The performances are thrilling and intense and they are captured in an excellent recording that mixes spaciousness and clarity. The contributions of the uncredited organist (Nicholas Wearne?) and the RSAMD trombonists add a splendid sonority to some of the items.” MusicWeb International, 11th July 2011

“There’s not a dud moment here...Ferguson’s singers are beyond reproach; intonation is never less than perfect and the sound made at full stretch is glorious – higher lines piercingly clear thanks to the cathedral’s choristers singing the soprano parts” The Arts Desk, 15th April 2011

Musica Saeculorum, Philip von Steinaecker

For this CD a chronological cross section of Bruckner’s work was chosen for the recorded concert, spanning from the very first composition of an eleven year old, a Pange lingua, to the late Vexilla Regis. It’s often hard to define musical roots and origins with Bruckner, since his first symphony already bears his unmistakable stamp, but some of these seldom performed early sacred compositions, which still prescribe to 18th and early 19th century Upper Austrian church tradition, can give an idea of his musical background. Many of these pieces sound like chorale harmonisations, but the chorale melodies are by Bruckner himself and display melodic attributes typical of the Alpine region.
