‘At its core, Amici Voices is a consort group of around twelve singers. It is, however, a versatile unit and can be heard in a variety of combinations, involving all or just a few of the singers. Its initial aims were to approach the large scale works of Bach as a group of soloists familiar with each others voices and used to singing together on a regular basis. From this, the group has moved beyond just the yearly Passion performances to concerts and solo appearances across the UK.’
