Background

Ebor Vox

Posted on 16 January 2013 | Audio

As part of the York 800 celebrations, York hosted a large scale choral project, Ebor Vox.

It saw hundreds of singers and performers gathering to form a community choir.  During York’s Charter Weekend in early July, they sung a specially-written song, composed by Benjamin Till and based on lyrics by the winners of a city-wide poetry competition.

The following film tells the story of how Ebor Vox came to be, how it went on the night and the legacy they feel the project leaves for York.
