Voce Chamber Choir
|Voce Chamber Choir|
Based in Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair, the choir is made up of around thirty singers in their 20s and 30s and covers a wide ranging and challenging repertoire of primarily a cappella music. Past concerts have featured European sacred music, Arabic music, gospel, jazz and even a programme alternating European renaissance music with traditional African chant.
In July 2010, Voce performed a programme which revived music from the Montagu Music Collection at Boughton House, including an anthem composed by Giovanni Bononcini for the Duke of Marlborough which had not been performed since the 18th Century. The programme also featured a new commission from composer Mike Brewer entitled 'Amore Vittorioso', sponsored by the BBC Performing Arts Fund.
In March 2009, Voce performed the London premiere of Peter Maxwell Davies’ setting of the poem ‘The Five Acts of Harry Patch’, by poet laureate Andrew Motion, accompanied by the London Mozart Players.
