WESTPORT — After five years away, Christ & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Westport was thrilled to see the return of the British choral group VOCES8.

On Saturday the eight-member group performed to a near-full house.

“They were so well received the first time that we’ve been looking forward to their return,” said Michael Burnette, parish musician.

“We perform all styles of music, which not many groups do, so that makes us unique,” said veteran member and countertenor Chris Wardle, with their performance including everything from 400-year-old church music to George Gershwin and Nat King Cole.
