Interpreters and guest artists

Vox Luminis
Lionel Meunier, conductor

We invite Vox Luminis, one of Europe’s most acclaimed vocal ‎ensembles, to present ‎this ‎programme that will‏ ‏permit us an insight into the impact the thoughts of Luther had ‎on ‎music and how this sounded in his time‎.

Program

Although still relatively unknown in Spain, Vox Luminis is one of Europe’s ‎leading ‎vocal ‎ensembles.Founded in‏ ‏‎2004 and‎‏ ‏directed by Lionel Meunier, the ensemble ‎performs ‎more than 60 concerts a year around the world with a repertoire that includes ‎Italian, English ‎and German music from the 16th, 17th and ‎‎18th centuries. Their albums have received acclaim ‎from international critics, as ‎demonstrated by the International Classical Music Award and the ‎Gramophone Recording of ‎the Year 2012 Prize for their recording of the music of Heinrich ‎Schütz. Under the title ‎‎The Reformation, in 2016 Vox Luminis recorded a double ‎album to ‎commemorate 500 years since the start of the Protestant Reformation. This work, ‎part of ‎which we can enjoy in the concert, will permit us an insight into the impact the ‎thoughts of ‎Luther had on music and how this sounded in his time. It is a glimpse of how ‎Lutheran ‎composers wrote music for the different ecclesiastical services and how they ‎changed the ‎liturgy of the Catholic Church‎.‎
