Bookmark and Share

British a cappella ensemble Voces 8 performs a selection of pieces spanning over 400 years: from Thomas Tallis and Gregorio Allegri to Massive Attack and Ben Folds. The album title ‘Lux' 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.

Voces 8 'Lux' on Decca is the WFMT: Chicago New Release Of the Week. Featured tracks are

Gjeilo: Ubi caritas (3:48)

Tallis: O nata lux (2:58)

Elgar: Lux aeterna (Nimrod) (3:52)
