Spiritual beings, angels are considered divine intermediaries between heaven and earth; messengers sent to guide and guard. Over the ages they have inspired artistic flights of brilliance from musicians, poets and writers, enshrining their essence and wisdom in art. Saint Ambrose is traditionally credited with promoting antiphonal voices in sacred music, calls and responses uniquely explored in A Guardian Angel.

‘queen of the Baroque violin’ (Sunday Times) Rachel Podger’s serene and beguiling virtuosity is the angelic guiding voice amidst choral masterpieces sung by star vocal ensemble VOCES8. Including a new commission for both artists by Owain Park, and The Three Kings by VOCES8 composer in residence Jonathan Dove, this meditative programme is designed to explore the space and acoustics of the venue. / @VOCES8 / @RachPodger
