Vox Luminis presents                                                                                                                                                                      THE BACH DYNASTY – 150 YEARS OF MOTETS

Vox Luminis, founded in 2004 in Namur, Belgium, is an ensemble specializing in the performance of 16th through 18th century vocal music. The ensemble has been praised for its seamless blend of high-quality individual voices, exquisite tuning, and clarity of sound. After a performance on the acclaimed Miller Theater Early Music Series in February 2016, the New York Times called the group’s program “revelatory,” adding that the singers “blended beautifully.”

“But Vox Luminis — which offered a revelatory program, ‘The Bach Dynasty,’ at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin near Times Square on Saturday evening as part of the Miller Theater’s Early Music series — seems to be taking a more systematic approach.

“No surprise, the performances were excellent. Many of these works ingeniously weave chorales through the fabric in one way or another, and the group constantly shifted shape and location to project the contrasting layers most effectively. Yet the singers — four women, seven men — blended beautifully when sheer harmoniousness was the goal.”

–  James R. Oestreich, New York Times

“With only a single voice for each of the 10 parts, Vox Luminis produced a grippingly dramatic performance. This was no stained-glass singing, but a bold, out-there realization of musical and emotional import.” – Scott Cantrell, Dallas Morning News
