Baroque Voices ('BV') has been performing now for 20 years, in Wellington and around NZ, and to celebrate we have a wonderful smorgasbord of works sung in previous concerts - old and new music, accompanied and unaccompanied, spanning a whole millennium from the 12th Century to the 21st Century - to present to you...

The concert includes works by (among others): Hildegard von Bingen, Machaut, Wilbye, Monteverdi, Charpentier, Purcell, JS Bach, Handel, JL Bach, Poulenc, "anon.", and NZ composers, Jack Body, Ross Harris, Carol Shortis, Pepe Becker and Mark Smythe.

Past and present members of Baroque Voices - Pepe Becker (director), Jane McKinlay, Nicola Holt (nee Edgecombe), Sabrina Malcolm, Joanne Hodgson, Fiona McCabe, Andrea Cochrane, Peter Dyne, Phillip Collins, Jeffrey Chang, David Morriss, Craig Beardsworth and Dimitrios Theodoridis - will be joined by guest artists and long-time colleagues, Douglas Mews (harpsichord, organ, piano) and Robert Oliver (bass viol) in some works.

To add to the party atmosphere, we are inviting people to 'sponsor a song'. The idea is, one can choose a particular work (*from the programme list) and gift it, as it were, to the audience. For $100 per work, each sponsor will get: one free entry to the concert; an invitation to meet the performers afterwards, and the warm feeling of knowing they have supported Baroque Voices (a "world class" vocal ensemble) towards covering the costs of this concert, and towards bringing future performances of wonderful music of past and present eras to New Zealand audiences. If you know of anyone who loves early music, contemporary music - or any vocal music from any era - who might like to contribute in this way, or if you yourself would like to, please email: baroquevoicesdirector@gmail.com*
