If it depends on Bachfest Leipzig, Freiburger Barockorchester, Ensemble Recherche and Vox Luminis, the soundtrack for summer 2023 is already known: Bach, Bach and more Bach. With the new initiative Bach 300 Summerclass, (semi-) professional singers and instrumentalists will have the chance to indulge in Bach from 7 to 16 August, accompanied by members of the organising ensembles. Vox Luminis singers thus have the privilege of sharing their expertise with and investing in the voices of the future. On the pupiter: Bach cantatas created exactly 300 years ago –in August 1723– by the then brand new Thomascantor of Leipzig as well as a selection from the Florilegium Portense motet collection.

Johannes Brahms could compose his own ‘liturgy’ for the Deutsches Requiem , as Lutherans do not know a fixed funeral service. Jérôme Lejeune, musicologist and manager of the Ricercar label, and Lionel Meunier, artistic director of Vox Luminis, followed the trail of his choices to some well and lesser-known pages of our core repertoire. Our new recording thus brings together motets by the likes of Christian Geist, Johann Philipp Förtsch, Andreas Hammerschmidt and Johann Hermann Schein, all 17th-century compositions that guided Brahms in his text choices.
