Blessing: The Music of Paul Mealor

£12.00

Voce’s mission, as articulated by Artistic Director Mark Singleton, is to Serve Harmony. They strive to perform each piece as a unified ensemble – to get straight to the heart of each composition. This cooperative spirit enables them to render music that expresses, as closely as possible, the intent of the composer.

Paul Mealor’s music, in turn, comes from a place of deep humility. It stirs the soul, allowing
the spirit of all who hear it a direct, unconditioned experience of peace, love, compassion
and a profound joy. When Paul came to work with Voce in 2017, it was obvious that Voce and
Paul Mealor were a perfect pairing. Some things are just meant to be.
