About

The young, virtuoso a cappella ensemble Voces8 return to disc on Signum with a sumptuous collection of early works by Henry Purcell, one of Englandís greatest composers.

Joined by the specialist early music ensemble Les Inventions, the group explores Purcellís astoundingly diverse output. There is hardly a genre in which he did not express himself: anthems, odes, funeral music, semi-operas, masques, sonatas, consort-music, songs and catches populate his extraordinarily multifaceted oeuvre.

It is this astonishing diversity that Signum and Voces8 celebrate.
