VOCES8: Nunc Dimittis - Arvo Pärt
 
05:50
VOCES8 performs Arvo Pärt's setting of the Nunc Dimittis. Arvo Pärt invented his own compositional style called ‘tintinnabuli’, taken from the Latin for bell. This is his powerful setting of the Nunc Dimittis, committing the body to eternal rest. We were inspired to create a video centered around the theme of cycles within nature, referencing our own mortality, with suggestions of the holy messenger in the deer, purity and love with the swan and finally the soul soaring up to heaven with the bird. The minimal setting of the music is reflected in the sparse use of colour, with inclusions of bright images that reference the ultimately uplifting nature of his beautiful music. This track is recorded on VOCES8's album 'Winter' released on Decca Classics in 2016.

04:05
VOCES8 sings the traditional German carol, 'Es ist ein Ros entsprungen' during a recording session for the group's album, EQUINOX. www.voces8equinox.com A spotless Rose is blowing, sprung from a tender root, Of ancient seers’ foreshowing of Jesse promised fruit; Its fairest bud unfolds to light Amid the cold, cold winter; and in the dark midnight. The Rose which I am singing, whereof Isaiah said, Is from its sweet root springing in Mary, purest Maid; For, through our God’s great love and might, The blessed Babe she bare us in a cold, cold winter’s night. This Flower, whose fragrance tender with sweetness fills the air, Dispels with glorious splendour the darkness everywhere; True Man, yet very God, From sin and death He saves us, and lightens every load. O Jesus, by being born out of this vale of tears, Let Thy help guide us to the hall of joy In your father’s kingdom, As we praise You eternally; O God, give us that. **** VOCES8 is part of the VCM Foundation, a music education foundation.

VOCES8 performs the Simon and Garfunkel classic 'The Sound of Silence' arranged by Alexander L'Estrange. Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again Because a vision softly creeping Left its seeds while I was sleeping And the vision that was planted in my brain Still remains Within the sound of silence In restless dreams I walked alone Narrow streets of cobblestone 'Neath the halo of a street lamp I turned my collar to the cold and damp When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light That split the night And touched the sound of silence And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people, maybe more People talking without speaking People hearing without listening People writing songs that voices never share And no one dared Disturb the sound of silence Fools, said I, you do not know Silence like a cancer grows Hear my words that I might teach you Take my arms that I might reach you But my words, like silent raindrops fell And echoed in the wells of silence And the people bowed and prayed To the neon god they made And the sign flashed out its warning In the words that it was forming And the sign said, the words of the prophets are written on the subway walls And tenement halls And whispered in the sounds of silence **** VOCES8 is part of the VCM Foundation, a music education foundation.

VOCES8 performs Gene Puerling's arrangement of 'London By Night' in central London. The ballad was written by Carroll Coates and made famous by Frank Sinatra. Wherever my footsteps may wander It's still the same moon shining down But I can't forget, when I saw the sun set and the moon rise on old London Town.. London by night is a wonderful sight There is magic abroad in the air I'm often told that the streets turn to gold When the moon shines on Circus and Square Deep in the dark that envelops the park There´s romance in each cigarette glow Down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems Seem to wink at each girl and her beau Up comes the moon when the city's asleep He´s not alone, for it seems Somewhere up there stands an angel to keep her watch While each Londoner dreams My love and I saw the sun leave the sky Then we kissed in the fast-fading light Most people say they love London by day But lovers love London by night London footage courtesy of: istock.com motionplaces.com videvo.com **** VOCES8 is part of the VCM Foundation, a music education foundation.

May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind, For those that here we see no more; Ring out the feud of rich and poor, Ring in redress to all mankind. Ring out the want, the care, the sin, The faithless coldness of the time; Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes, But ring the fuller minstrel in. Ring out old shapes of foul disease; Ring out the narrowing lust of gold; Ring out the thousand wars of old, Ring in the thousand years of peace.
