In 2005, a group of singers was en route to a festival in Italy. They had the repertoire, they were rehearsed – all ready to wow their waiting audience. All they needed now was a name. Paul Smith, one of those singers, said, "We needed a name to go on stage and there were eight of us and we were in Italy. We wanted something that feels like voices but had that Latin vibe to it, so we went with voces." Thus was born VOCES8, a group that Gramophone calls “impeccable in its tone and balance.” The group brings to audiences a captivating blend of original and commissioned pieces, classical works, and even pop tunes. They’ve got a large and growing catalog of recordings, including their 2019 release Enchanted Isle, and maintains a touring and performing schedule that puts them before audiences in the most prestigious halls in the world. As part of their visit to Brigham Young University as guests of the BRAVO! series, members of the group stopped by the Highway 89 studio to share conversation and album cuts with us.  Learn more about them here: http://www.voces8.com/  Songs featured on the show: May it Be, Song for Athena, The Parting Glass, Hymn to the Fallen, O Magnum Mysterium, Stars, The Luckiest
