Vocal Magic

In today’s programme, we present a selection of music featuring the human voice, from Mediæval times to the present.

Both secular and a little sacred music is included, so today’s show will be quite varied, ranging between troubadour songs, Renaissance choral works, traditional English folk‐songs sung by artists like the King’s Singers and Coope Boyes & Simpson, and modern works such as those of Karl Jenkins, Libera, The Swingle Singers, The Carpenters — including the newly‐released album with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra — and Donna McKevitt’s haunting settings of Derek Jarman’s poetry.

The programme focuses primarily on lesser‐known works and on smaller vocal ensembles, rather than either solo or large‐scale performances, but examples of both are also included.
