Voces8 & Les Inventions
The young, virtuoso ensemble Voces8 returns with a sumptuous collection of early works by Henry Purcell. Joined by the specialist early-music ensemble Les Inventions, the group explores Purcell’s astoundingly diverse output – there is hardly a genre in which he did not express himself: anthems, odes, funeral music, semi-operas, masques, sonatas, consort-music and songs.
