VOCAL ensemble Excelsa Voces, led by Pershore-based soprano Paula Evans, will be performing a sequence of music ancient and modern for voices and instruments.

Joined by cellist Tom McMahon, and keyboard player Chris Long - who also uses electronics to create mesmeric loop-based musical textures - an Excelsa Voces performance blends medieval and contemporary music into an immersive experience, exploring the unique acoustic of each venue and enhancing the music with an environment of subtle colours and candlelight. The programme includes beautiful music by Fripp and Keeling, Gavin Bryars, Eric Whitacre, Ivan Moody and Tigran Hamasyan, alongside 12th century chant and music by the 16th century composer Tomas Luis de Victoria.

The event is taking place in Stratford's medieval Guild Chapel on Friday, May 17.

Excelsa Voces concerts have been described as 'ethereal' and 'utterly superb.'

The concert begins at 7.30 and tickets are £15 and can be bought from The Stratford Gallery (01789 414400) or online at excelsavoces.com.
