Evensong, the title track of the album from the British a cappella group Voces8, was created through the profitable collaboration between legendary hit composers Ken Howard and Alan Blaikey and the award-winning octet Voces8. As a result, a stunning version came into being from Howard and Blaikley's unforgettable title theme from the BBC TV show Miss Marpe combined with a deeply moving text and the magnificent, beautiful voices of Voces8.
The CD reflects the present-day conflict between traditional and tolerant values. Musically, a wide spectrum is covered: from pop and jazz all the way to liturgy. Almost all the pieces are arranged by Jim Clements - absolutely ingenious and absolutely recommended!!
