Vox8 vocal octet made a welcome return trip to St John's in Sunday 14 December to sing a concert entitled Gaudete. They brought Advent and Christmas closer by singing beautiful motets by Purcell, Schubert, Warlock, Leighton and Stopford. The motets were interspersed with plainchant and carols in which the audience participated. Vivaldi's uplifting Gloria formed the second half of the hour-long concert. A small orchestra, led by Matthew Taylor accompanied the choir splendidly.
