Programme:

The Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis and its leader Lionel Meunier are praised for their subtle music making, seducing their audiences with radiant vocal artistry at its finest! With their rich, vibrant sound, in which each individual voice is crystal clear, Vox Luminis has accepted a very special challenge for the magnificent Verden cathedral: the 40-voice settings »Ecce beatam lucem« by Alessandro Striggio and »Spem in alium« by Thomas Tallis. The two composers set new standards with their masterpieces, which still fascinate to this day with their splendor and magnitude! They built upon the tradition of Josquin Desprez, who already united 24 singers for his impressive motet »Qui habitat«. From these unique compositions of the Renaissance, for which Vox Luminis divide themselves into up to ten different choirs, the ensemble conjures up a textured web of sounds, promising overwhelming, expansive vocal splendor through intoxicating polyphony!
