'Vox Luminis changes everyting it touches in gold' reviewed the Spanish newspaper El Pais. This vocal ensemble, lead by French bass Lionel Meunier, is based in Belgium, but looking at the twelve singers' names one might as well call it a musical version of united Europe. They specialize in the early English, French, Italian and German music from the 17th and early 18th century.

They work together with the Freiburger Barockconsort, which is an ensemble consisting of players from the famous Freiburger Barockorchester. From the beginning in 2004 Vox Luminis has made a great number of award winning recordings. 

It is a well known fact that Bach's music is deeply moving. Less well known is that many of his contemporaries wrote music with exactly that quality. Ever heard of Christoph Bernhard or Heinrich Biber? Both wrote extremely moving music, which has now been recorded by Vox Luminis on their latest cd. The Volkskrant gave it a five-star revies, headed "The level Vox Luminis, the Freiburger Barockconsort and Lionel Meunier have reached borders on perfection. Heinrich Biber himself was a highly accomplished violinist and he loved to show it. His touching Requiem in F minor is unique in its genre because the violin is given such an important role.

To reduce waiting times at the bar to an absolute minimum, we have implemented a cashless interval. A drink is included in your ticket, so you'll have more time to enjoy your company and your drinks.
