Prepare yourself for the exceptionally smooth sounds of VOCES8 as they take you on an acoustic tour of cathedrals throughout New Zealand. Gramophone Magazine writes, “The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.”

This tour will envelop you in sounds of infinite purity, from Tallis to Dove, Gibbons to Gjeilo. VOCES8 bring a selection of wintry tales to resonate with the season.

This young British vocal ensemble’s perfect transparency, extreme cohesion, flawless accuracy and sheer stage presence will win you over immediately.
