Listen to Bella Voce Camerata here:
THE BELLA VOCE CAMERATA was founded in 2014 as a vehicle for Bella Voce to perform some of the great trove of works written for very small vocal ensembles. Among those intimate works are rare gems and extraordinary pieces, and we were motivated by a deep passion to share those works. And to showcase Bella Voce’s extraordinary talents. All members of the Camerata are drawn from the excellent talent of Bella Voce’s full ensemble, and the Camerata gives us the flexibility to take on smaller repertoire of various requirements, as well as have a more agile group for outreach and for contract work. The Camerata made its official debut on WFMT radio in 2014, followed by its inaugural performance, by performing David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize–winning oratorio The Little Match Girl Passion along with excerpts from Dieterich Buxtehude’s Membra Jesu Nostri. We continue to work in unison with Bella Voce’s fundamental vision—that of presenting authentic performances of works both old and new.
