For already 4 days we are n 1 selling classical on Quobuz where you can get on CD on master quality (higher quality than CD. Happy for this reception of our recording, for Ensemble Masques, Alpha Classics and Outhere Music but even more for Buxtehude’s music which really deserves to be more and more known and some of his cantates regarded as masterworks.

Tune in to BBC Radio 3. Rumours say that they will be talking about our new recording for Alpha Classics / Outhere Music with Ensemble Masques. Listen to Record Review with @Andrew Mc Gregor and if you don't understand English, just enjoy the sound of the lovely British accent and the extract of our CD to listen!

CD OF THE WEEK Presto Classical
Quite a great news for the official release of the CD today in the UK for our last CD on Alpha Classics / Outhere Music with Ensemble Masques dedicated to D. Buxtehude.

"...The sensitive and subtle performances by Ensemble Masques and Vox Luminis clearly demonstrate that the Northern approach is more than capable of standing on its own merits. The story of Bach’s visit to Lübeck has been passed down the ages, and it’s wonderful finally to be able to hear for ourselves what all the fuss was about – pace The Proclaimers, these are definitely performances worth hiking three hundred miles to hear!" David Smith

5K from kulturradio vom rbb for our latest album dedicated to Buxtehude together with Ensemble Masques.
This is the first review coming from Germany.
"Barockes Dreamteam... Nirgends wird Effekthascherei betrieben, nirgendwo werden Tempi zu stark forciert oder dynamische Kontraste unnötig aufgeblasen. Stattdessen dominieren eine makellose Intonation, sehr gute Textverständlichkeit und vor allem eine größtmögliche Homogenität.

Alle Sologesänge werden – wie immer bei Vox luminis – von Mitgliedern des Ensembles selbst bestritten, überdies funktioniert das Zusammenspiel mit den Instrumentalisten von Masques hervorragend. Schöner als in dieser sanft und geschmackvoll vergoldeten Form kann man Buxtehude kaum aufführen." Bernhard Schrammek, Kulturradio.

We are saying goodbye to California today. We will be back soon, stay tuned to know where and when!
A lovely review that captures well our concerts. One thing we can say this trip was unique : )
"...The group has a soft-edged, transparent sound, & the performance was flowing & numinous. The sopranos had lustrous high notes that seemed to sail through the air. Even though there was just one or two singers per part, the performers managed to make a distinction between chorus sections, with the voices blending, & solo passages, with individual voices standing out. I liked the easeful, sustainable tempos, which never pushed the music..."

Ready to go for the Finale of Berkeley Festival & Exhibition with our favorite cantatas by Buxtehude, JC Bach, Pachelbel and JS Bach. Happy and honoured to sing the last concert of the last festival of Robert Cole as Artistic Director, the man who offered us our USA debut back in 2014!
