Since its founding in 2004, the vocal ensemble Vox Luminis, led by bass Lionel Meunier, has been internationally praised for its unique sound, both with a cast of soloists and in larger productions. Vox Luminis specializes in English, Italian, and German repertoire from the 17th and early 18th centuries, bringing to life not only well-known masterpieces, but also rare gems.
After winning the ‘Recording of the Year’ at the Gramophone Awards 2012, Vox Luminis has made sixteen recordings with Ricercar, Alpha Classics, Ramée, and Musique en Wallonie, and has won numerous international prizes including ‘Klara Ensemble of the Year 2018,’ BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Choral Award Winner 2018,’ three Diapasons d’Or, and several Preis der deutschen Schalplattenkritik. Last year, the ensemble received another Gramophone Classical Music Award in the ‘Choral’ category for Buxtehude: Abendmusiken (2019).
Every year Vox Luminis gives around 70 concerts at major concert halls and festivals internationally, including BOZAR (Brussels), deSingel (Antwerp), Auditorio Nacional de Música (Madrid), L’Auditori (Barcelona), Wigmore Hall (London), Philharmonie Berlin, Lincoln Center (New York), Zaryadye Hall (Moscow), Festival of Flanders, Les Festivals de Wallonie, Festival de Saintes, Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, Musikfest Bremen, Bachfest Leipzig, Aldeburgh Festival, and the Boston Early Music Festival.
Vox Luminis is artist in residence at Concertgebouw Brugge. Recently, the ensemble launched a collaboration with the Freiburger Barockorchester.
