A rising composer's debut release on a major label, Gjeilo's album on Decca is an important release of heavenly, bewitching, eternal new choral music for our time. Ethereal yet tangible, this is music with wide appeal; music of purity and beauty; music at once restful and uplifting.

Composer Ola Gjeilo draws on influences from his Nordic background to conjure modern choral music of exceptional beauty. Radiant vocal textures are enhanced by transcendental instrumental additions; a twinkling piano performed by Ola himself; captivating, exquisite strings; and bewitching acoustic guitar.

Ethereal yet tangible, this is music with wide appeal; music of purity and beauty; music at once restful and uplifting.

Gjeilo - pronounced “Yay-lo” - has evolved a musical style which is at once contemporary and familiar. His concentrated harmonies and rich textures combined with graceful, engaging melody, contain echoes of Morten Lauridsen, Eric Whitacre, and the best luscious film scores.

Influenced by improvisers, along with composers such as John Adams, Desplat, Newman, Marinelli, Williams, Elgar, Vaughan-Williams and Tavener, Ola describes his music as “a lyrical mix of improvisation and classical”, and others often describe it as “cinematic… evocative, lush, story-telling…”

Decca is delighted to announce that VOCES8, one of Britain's most dazzling vocal ensembles, has joined its roster of artists. The thrilling young singers of VOCES8 combine terrific energy and charisma with immaculate vocal blend, breaking down barriers between music as diverse as Tallis, Bruckner and Emeli Sandé.

Critics have showered VOCES8 with praise, celebrating their “radiant” and “luminous” sound, “imaginative theatricality” and spotlighting their “impressive stage presence”. VOCES8 make their Decca debut with the release of Eventide in early 2014, an exquisite album exploring the magical time between day and night, including original compositions and freshly arranged pieces spanning five centuries and all rooted in reflection and repose. Eventide's rich sonic blend is frequently combined with haunting solo instrumentals from saxophone, cello, and harp and is sure to appeal to the discerning listener who enjoys music with gorgeous sound and spiritual meaning.
