Two branches of choral royalty entwine with majestic harmony on the latest Decca release from Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre and the acclaimed vocal ensemble Voces8. The album includes a world premiere, All Seems Beautiful To Me, and a new recording of Whitacre’s deeply moving 2019 cantata The Sacred Veil. Voces8 has long had an ardent admirer in Whitacre. “Their sound is glassy and pure, like spun honey,” he says. “The chance to have my music brought to life by musicians of this caliber is all I could ever hope for, and, in fact, this is how I always dreamed it would sound.”
