Come listen to our new program with British tenor Charles Daniels! A life-cycle of songs and suites from the European union of Handel’s birth: Purcell, Jenkins, Blow, Akeroyde, Lawes. We wish to express our gratitude to the Conseil des arts de Montréal for supporting this project.

Our new CD has just been released! We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it last summer! British lutenist Nigel North joins viol consort Les Voix humaines for Lachrimae, a new recording of John Dowland’s 1604 compositions set for lute and viols. Passionate pavans, galiards, and almands evoke the tears referred to in the title.
Susie Napper and Margaret Little were in Paris with the exceptional tenor Charles Daniels and the luthist Fred Jacobs to offer a recital of moving works by brothers Henry and William Lawes …
The Voix humaines Consort of Viols (Margaret Little, Mélisande Corriveau, Felix Deak & Susie Napper) went to Poland last September to perform one of its favorite programs : J. S. Bach’s Art of the Fugue.
It is with great joy that les Voix humaines offer at last their own interpretation of the famous concertos which are among the world’s most performed musical pieces. Indeed, there is not only a large number of recordings of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, but many musicians from different backgrounds want to perform this great universal score in their own style.
Susie et Margaret have created fabulous arrangements for four violas of Vivaldi’s so loved ‘Four Seasons’
