This event has ended.

The Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis—acclaimed for their “profound, rewarding, and intoxicating” (Gramophone) performances—make their series debut with motets from one of music’s most illustrious families. Over the generations, the Bach family set the standard for German Lutheran church music: rich, warm, and powerful, the work fits its transcendent subject matter. Culminating in J.S. Bach’s dramatic Jesu meine Freude, this program lets the splendid works of Johann’s predecessors (and cousins) ring out.
