sitting down and listening to your human rights recited above richter's achingly beautiful classical arrangements may seem like an odd way to kick your sunday off, but it's doubtless a poignant and compelling experience.

Over a decade after its inception, the ground-breaking composer finally released his project inspired by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In a time of dramatic global change, 'VOICES' offers a musical message of hope. Max Richter invited people around the world to be part of the piece, crowd-sourcing readings of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to be interwoven into the work, which features an ‘upside-down’ orchestra. He received hundreds of submissions in over 70 languages. These readings form the aural landscape that the music flows through: they are the VOICES of the title.
