The vocal ensemble, Voces Boreales, invites you to an exceptional evening with a performance of Path of Miracles (2005) by English composer Joby Talbot on a libretto by Robert Dickinson. This a cappella work for 18 singers has been described as "quite simply the most beautiful choral work of recent years", "a must-hear". It follows the journey of a pilgrim on his way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain in four movements. This Camino Francès, more than 800 km long, ends on the Atlantic coast, in Finisterre - literally "the end of the world". For the listener who is gradually coming out of confinement, it is a pilgrimage in sound, “metaphysical” so to speak, outside one’s self, a way of “moulting” and shedding the old pre- confinement skin and returning to the urban world with a fresh new outlook.
