Both concerts will feature Misa de los Mineros - The Miners’ Mass (composed by Mauricio Venegas-Astorga), performed by Quimantu, Andover Museum Loft Singers, members of Cecil Sharp House Choir and The Alkyona Quartet. This will be followed by a programme of world and folk music from Quimantu and Andover Museum Loft Singers (Director Paul Sartin).

“This music is some of the most beautiful and compelling the world has to offer”

CLASSIC CD MAGAZINE 

 

“There are echoes of the folk integrity of fellow Chileans Inti Illimani and somewhere, partly through the honesty and integrity of it all, one feels the passionate legacy of Victor Jara.”

Jan Fairley, FOLK ROOTS MAGAZINE

About the Voces Festival 2021

Unknown-3.jpeg

The past twelve months or so have been a challenge for everyone around the world and though we have been experiencing improvements in the situation in the UK we recognise that we are still in the midst of a global crisis as the pandemic continues to ravage many other countries and communities. The Voces Festival can shine a light in this darkness and as we saw with our digital Festival in 2020 can be not only a beacon of hope, but something that enables us to connect locally and globally through music, poetry, culture and our common humanity.
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year we are presenting a hybrid live and digital festival, with a very exciting list of musicians, poets and cultural leaders involved. By deploying the community and collective spirit embodied in the Voces Festival we aim to catalyse, nurture, regenerate and activate the cultural and social recovery of individuals and communities as we find our way out of the pandemic. As part of that mission for the Voces Festival to support communities we created the Surtierra Project through which we have been collaborating with the Andover Museum Loft Singers (ALMS) and their Director Paul Sartin since February of this year. It is a real joy to work with AMLS and Paul and we are very excited to be presenting the new arrangement of the Misa de los Mineros for solo voices, choir, string quartet, piano and Quimantu.
