Rachel Podger is the ‘unsurpassed British glory of the Baroque violin’, established as a leading interpreter of the music of the Baroque and Classical periods. Formerly leader of the Gabrieli Consort, the English Concert and Guest Director of the OAE, Rachel is the founder and Artistic Director of the Brecon Baroque Festival.

She is joined by the British vocal ensemble VOCES8, known for their extensive repertoire, performed a capella, with impeccable quality and meticulous timing and tuning. For this concert Rachel and VOCES8 have resurrected their highly successful 2018 collaboration, which was podcast to Ilkley in 2020, in which they share their versatility in a celebration of works which range from the medieval to the present day, all reflecting in different ways on matters angelic, this time with an Easter twist.
