For their second North American tour, the wonderful British ensemble Voice presents a program of songs exploring the beauty, heartache, and humor of love. The repertoire ranges from the devotional songs of the medieval German abbess Hildegard of Bingen, whose soaring lines express spiritual love and her deep empathy with the natural world and female form to the comedy and melancholy in ballads, sonnets, and catches from Shakespeare’s time. Traditional songs from the British Isles telling stories both bitter and sweet and Voice’s own arrangements and commissions will round out the program. Love, in all its forms, has inspired human beings for centuries, and it is brought to life through the immediacy and resonance of the human voice—and there are none more beautiful than these three.
