Vox Luminis

Vox Luminis

Vox Luminis, founded in 2004 in Namur, Belgium, is an ensemble specializing in the performance of 16th–18th century vocal music. Every year, the ensemble releases on average two discs and offers its audience more than 60 concerts on Belgian, European and international stages. Vox Luminis defines itself as a group of soloists with a variable combination (with a base from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague) and of a continuo, additional instrumentalists or a full orchestra, depending on the repertoire. The repertoire is essentially Italian, English and German and spans the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries. Since its creation, the ensemble has been noted for its cohesion and it charms with the personality of every timbre and the homogeneity of the voices.

The ensemble can count thirteen recordings to its name. It has won many awards including the prestigious Gramophone Recording of the Year (2012), for Musicalische Exequien by Heinrich Schütz. Recent releases from Alpha Classics are the Abendmusiken by Buxtehude and King Arthur by Purcell. In 2018, Vox Luminis won the BBC Music Magazine Award in the category “Choral Award Winner” and KLARA named them “ensemble of the year.”
