Vox Luminis

Sacred Monteverdi
Saturday, October 22, 2022, 8PM
Church of St. Mary the Virgin (145 W. 46th Street)

Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis performs a program of emotive sacred works by Claudio Monteverdi, specifically selections from his Selva Morale e Spirituale (or Moral and Spiritual Forest). The chamber ensemble (10 singers plus strings, harp, and organ) expertly navigates the liturgical works from this unique and complex anthology, featuring a variety of genres from motets to masses.

Dezron Douglas is one of the most in-demand young bassists in jazz today. He has performed and recorded with jazz luminaries such as Pharoah Sanders, Cyrus Chestnut, George Cables, Keyon Harrold, and Makaya McCraven. The New York-based composer, bandleader, and sideman was featured in Miller's Live from Columbia digital series over the pandemic, and now returns with his new quartet.
