This week, the vocal ensemble Voces8 released a new video of the group performing "Lay a Garland" by Robert Lucas Pearsall (1795 - 1856).

On their Facebook page, Voces8 posted, "This week in 2005 holds bittersweet memories for the group; whilst we performed our first concert, London also suffered the tragedy of 7/7. Pearsall's 'Lay a Garland' has been a mainstay in our repertoire through the years."

The video was recorded at Gresham Centre, the ensemble's home in London.
