The works of 12 different composers represented in the 3 Multitude of Voyces collections will be presented by the BBC Singers on Radio 3 this afternoon. This recital represents a significant milestone in the journey of these volumes and the composers they represent. I hope you will join me and many others in tuning in to discover new pieces and encounter composers whose works will be broadcast for the first time.
Penny Gore presents the BBC Singers in sacred music by women composers taken from ‘Multitude of Voyces’, a new series of publications dedicated to this repertoire. Programme link available here.
