Gothic Voices - Mary Star Of The Sea - Financial Times

Ancient and modern often sit alongside in sacred music.

In putting together a musical portrait of Mary, mother of Jesus, Gothic Voices have turned to composers medieval and contemporary. The mood throughout is one of serenity and grace.

In new works by Joanne Metcalf and Andrew Smith, American and English respectively, the old reverence takes on a subtly distinctive modern tone.

The membership of Gothic Voices has changed over the years, but the present four singers have lost nothing of the group's original purity and fine sense of balance.
