SANSARA with Liam Byrne, viola da gamba

4th SJE Arts Next Generation Series: SANSARA with Liam Byrne, viola da gamba​

 Inspired by the solo viol piece of the same title by the French composer Marin Marais (1656-1728), Les Voix Humaines is a collaboration between the award-winning vocal ensemble SANSARA and the renowned viola da gamba player Liam Byrne.

The combination of voice and viol is central to much early music from across Europe: this project seeks to investigate and deconstruct the relationship by commissioning new work for choir and solo viol which draws on the Fifteenth Century notion that the viol was the instrument closest to replicating the subtleties of the human voice.

Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval
