Notes and Editorial Reviews
Voces8 releases Enchanted Isle, a new album of music reminiscent of rolling hills, green valleys, rugged mountainsides, and sleepy villages. Enchanted Isle features reimagined pieces originally written for film or television (such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones), new arrangements of Scottish and Irish melodies, and compositions set to texts by great English poets.

REVIEW:

As a concept, this collection of songs inspired by rugged British landscapes is intriguing, the delivery powerful.
