The Royal Festival Hall in London begins it's acclaimed choral series WorldVoice this week. Featured choirs include the Tapiola Choir, The Sixteen, Westminster Abby Choir, The Rustavi Choir and others from around the world.

Singing in a group is an ancient human musical activity which unites societies profoundly - a song's words contain the deepest beliefs of a society, and the occasions for singing are momentous: births, weddings, funerals and festivals. In drawing together a festival of choral music from across the globe, I am drawn to the way that most peoples still use choral music for its most fundamental purpose: celebration. Choirs from all over the world have been invited to take part, and each one of them has been chosen because it represents the very best in its tradition.
(William Robson, Artistic Director, WorldVoice)
