Voces Sacrae is a 9-voice professional vocal ensemble made up of some of England's finest young singers. It is based in Oxford although the majority of the singers live in London. Voces Sacrae specialises in sacred music from the 16th and 20th centuries.

In 1998, Voces Sacrae undertook a very successful tour to Sydney, Australia. The choir has been working with the repertoire promotion department of Oxford University Press for some time now and this tour was undertaken in association with them.

In Australia, Voces Sacrae gave the world premier performance of Michael Finnissy's 'Seven Sacred Motets' (the first time that the seven motets have been performed as a set). This performance was given to an audience of Australian composers, performers and publishers.

As a result of the tour and of the involvement with OUP, Voces Sacrae is about to record two CDs to be released on the Metier label. One is a single recording of the Finnissy and the other is a selection of contemporary repertoire from OUP. The second CD will include a Mass written for Voces Sacrae by Magnus Williamson (an academic musician, lecturing at Newcastle University). This work is to be published by OUP.
