Vox Concordia

Vox Concordia

Mixed Vocal Jazz Octet from UK, England.

Ever since we first got together in 2003 vocal group Vox Concordia have been making beautiful a cappella music together. Whether it's jazz or classical, prayer or pop, something old, new, borrowed or blue, we're eight amateur voices who make one professional sound.

Our base is in Woking, Surrey, but we sing anywhere in the UK and beyond, from cathedrals to coffee houses, from convention centres to corridors and from TV studios to transport caffs.

The line-up has changed slightly over the years, along with the repertoire, but the quality of our singing and the musical values we espouse remain constant as we go from strength to strength. In 2005 our quality was all too much for Simon Cowell on The X-Factor, but in 2007 our album Making Notes was nominated for a CARA award in the USA as A Cappella Jazz Album of the Year and in 2009 we were one of only five finalists in the Good Housekeeping Choir of the Year Competition.

Vox Concordia : Making Notes

Review: Vox Concordia is a four-man, four-women Vocal Jazz octet from England, who bring us this excellent debut recording of 14 a cappella tunes. They begin with two arranged by Jonathan Rathbone, ex-Musical Director of the Swingle Singers, "Jeepers Creepers" and "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square," a Graham Smith arrangement of the Carpenters' hit "Superstar, a Swingles arrangement of "It Don't Mean a Thing (if it Ain't Got that Swing)," a live, rousing cover of Stephen Foster's "Oh, Susannah!" (with the first faux banjo we've heard)," the very funny live "Adieu, Mon Amour," Irving Berlin's "Puttin' on the Ritz," Randy Newman's touching "When She Loved Me," the pulse-quickening "All Rise," and finally "A Celtic Prayer" with music by Graham Webb are favorites. This is a fine recording and a great addition to anybody's collection.

Songlist: Jeepers Creepers, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, Superstar, The Way You Look Tonight, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), Smile, Oh Susannah!, Adieu, Mon Amour, A Dream Is A Wish, Puttin On The Ritz, When She Loved Me, Soul Bossa Nova, All Rise, A Celtic Prayer
