Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik for our Buxtehude CD with Ensemble Masques. A great project we did for Alpha Classics / Outhere Music.
We recorded it in AMUZ same as the Purcell semi opera to be released in 2 weeks!
Very nice to get appreciated in the country where the music was written!
"...Auf der einen Seite sind hier Glaubensstärke, Demut und Heilsgewissheit keine leeren Floskeln, sondern Ausdruck echter Seelsorge, auf der anderen Seite laben die Musiker sich an einem intensiven Klang, und wo es die Musik erfordert, lassen sie es auch nicht an instrumentaler oder vokaler Virtuosität missen." (Für die Jury: Matthias Hengelbrock)
Look at what just arrived at the office of Alpha Classics in Paris. This is our new recording for Outhere Music
Release is in some days... be patient! isn't it a great timing for your Christmas present? 😉
Concerts in 2019 to be announced on this page, stay tuned!

"Vox Luminis buoys spirits in exemplary song
One of the strengths of the ensemble is that they are, at one and the same time, a group of soloists and a closely matched and blended choir.
One might imagine that a whole concert of funeral music would make for a fairly dull and sobering evening. But not when the performers are the Belgian vocal group, Vox Luminis, and the music is by masters of the Baroque..." MARK MORRIS.
Thank you ClevelandClassical.com
"...To single out each singer in the group for praise would be to miss the point of this singular vocal collective, and in any case, they merit more than a glance in a review. For your own sake and that of art, dear reader, look them up; they may be the best at what they do." Nicholas Stevens
A very nice review from Blogcritics - Jon Sobel.
"Belgian early music vocal ensemble Vox Luminis wrapped up its current tour with an outstanding performance of J.S. Bach’s Motets on Sunday night in New York. Corpus Christi Church offers an ideal acoustic environment for a small, well-balanced array of voices. Numbering about a dozen, and accompanied only by organ and viola da gamba, the ensemble’s individual voices shone even as they cohered gorgeously around texts from biblical and other sources. The concert will be remembered as a highlight of Music Before 1800‘s 44th season...Anyone bringing troubles into the presence of Bach as interpreted by Vox Luminis is almost sure to feel them melting away into sweetness."
