About

Vox Luminis is a Belgian early music vocal ensemble created in 2004 by Artistic Director Lionel Meunier. The ensemble performs over 60 concerts a year, appearing on stages in Belgium, across Europe and around the world. Since its inception, the ensemble has been defined by its unique sound, appealing as much through the personality of each timbre as it does through the color and the uniformity of the voices. The size and composition of the group depends on the repertoire, with the core of soloists, mostly from the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, often joined by additional performers. The repertoire is essentially Italian, English and German and spans from the 16th to the 18th century.

After several recordings on Ricercar and a first disc on Alpha, Lionel Meunier and his ensemble Vox Luminis devote this new project to two showpieces by Handel and Bach. 

Of these two composers born in 1685, the first travelled to Italy in 1707 and made a powerful impression in Rome with the creation of his Dixit Dominus, while the second produced one of his finest compositional tours de force in the Magnificat of 1723/32-35. 

Two works from the core repertoire of the Belgian ensemble, here fielding combined vocal and instrumental forces, which is perfectly versed in the style and expression of Baroque rhetoric.

"You could be forgiven for not noticing that this year is the 460th anniversary of the death of John Sheppard, one of the least well known and most adventurous of Tudor composers....  Tune in to Radio 3 in Concert on iPlayer and check out Media vita ('in the midst of life we are in death'), sung as part of Vox Luminis’s almost impeccable Cadogan Hall concert of early English music: some 20 minutes of the most serene, and soaring, Renaissance polyphony in existence. No exaggeration."
