Interview with WUOL's Daniel Gilliam

The British vocal ensemble VOCES8 releases Enchanted Isle, a new album of music reminiscent of rolling hills, green valleys, rugged mountainsides, and sleepy villages. Enchanted Isle features reimagined pieces originally written for film or television (such as Lord of the Ringsand Game of Thrones), new arrangements of Scottish and Irish melodies, and compositions set to texts by great English poets. The ensemble's fourth album looks inward to the music of Britain in "Enchanted Isle." Barnaby Smith, a countertenor in the group, spoke with Daniel Gilliam about this new project and how they've tried to capture the sound of their homeland.
