Belgian 4-voice ensemble Encantar make their Cambridge debut with a brilliant programme called WOOD/WOULD, which combines the music of 16th century Bernardo Pisano, contemporary repertoire, and electro-acoustic interventions created by Lieselot De Wilde. The programme has two themes: WOOD refers to the wooden cross of Jesus Christ, dedication, devotion, pain, and religious passion; WOULD refers to human desire, human passion, doubt, and pain.
It was easy to be beguiled by the sheer beauty of Encantar's sound. They had a remarkable unity of tone, pure and rounded yet unadorned by operatic vibrato, and one from which individual voices could suddenly harden to stand out from the gently rippling tapestry. [The Guardian]
