Voces8 return to disc with this new recording of J.S.Bach's Motets, BWV 225-230. Joined by the Senesino Players, this young group prove their versatility and skill in performing some of Bach's most challenging and engaging compositions.
This disc follows their a cappella debut disc with Signum earlier this year, Aces High (SIGCD187) - themed around some stunning jazz arrangements and songs from the James Bond films:
"The slickest of the lot ... two parts King's Singers, three parts Swingle Singers, a dash of Bobby McFerrin and California sunshine ... fans of a cappella ought to hear this, not just for the singing but the production values and Jim Clements audacious arrangements" Andrew McGreggor, CD Review, BBC Radio 3
