Voces (Sweet Voices) is a vocal ensemble which specializes in performing
secular and sacred music composed before 1750. The group has an eclectic
repertoire which spans periods from chant and Burgundian motets to
Monteverdi and Purcell.
Dulces Voces is comprised of a group of eight singers based in
Lincoln, Nebraska. The ensemble performs mostly a cappella music
and has no conductor or advisor, therefore it draws on its members
for repertoire and performance practice. The members of Dulces Voces
come from varying backgrounds and professions, but all members have
a profound love for the music performed.
Dulces Voces' premier performance was a concert produced by Musica
Antiqua of Lincoln in April of 1993, called A Joyful Noise,
at St. Mark's on the Campus Episcopal Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.
In September of 1994, Dulces Voces took part in a benefit concert
produced by Musica Antiqua for NET
Radio (formerly the Nebraska Public Radio Network), portions
of which were aired on the NET
Radio show, Sound Stage, hosted by Chris Kohtz. In March
of 2000 the group performed in the world premiere of a piano work
by contemporary composer, Victoria Bond. In December of 2000, portions
of their Christmas concert, Wonder Tidings, were aired on
the same network.
In April of 2001, the group traveled with Paul Barnes to perform
a new work as part of the Cutting Edge Arts series of the
Greenwich House in New York City. In 2003 the group worked with
the Sacred Arts Council of Lincoln and Tyler White to premier White's
new work De Profundis, a setting of Psalm 130. For upcoming
