Interview with Classic 107 - Michael Wolch

British a cappella octet VOCES 8 - Lux on Decca/Universal Music Classics features a selection of pieces spanning over 400 years: from Thomas Tallis and Gregorio Allegri to Massive Attack (Teardrop) and Ben Folds (The Luckiest - which appeared on the soundtrack for Richard Curtis's film About Time). The album title refers to the Latin word ‘light,' which has inspired composers throughout history with the meaning of hope, banishing darkness, and nurturing both the body and the spirit. Voces8's celestial performances on the album prove how few can better evoke the power of light in all its physical, spiritual and mystical guises than the timeless sound of a choir.  In addition to the soothing sound of unaccompanied voices blended in harmony, several tracks feature additions of saxophone, cello, harp and water glasses.

Lux has been selected as Winnipeg's Classic 107 - Classical Recording of the Month for February. Partnering with McNally Robinson Booksellers.

As an added bonus, host CKCL's Michael Wolch will do his very best to track down the featured artists, wherever they may be around the world, and chat with them about the new CD. 

Tune in today as we feature the new CD by Voces8 entitled Lux, and hear about it right from Voces8 countertenor Barnaby Smith, who Michael caught up with in France last week.
