‹ Back to What's On Vox Luminis

Purcell: Night and Day

Vox Luminis, founded in 2004, is a Gramophone Award winning, first-class European ensemble specialising in 16th – 18th century vocal music that are particularly noted for its seamless blend of exceptional individual voices, exquisite tuning and clarity of sound.

For this Autumnal concert, the programme centres on the sublime songs of English composer Henry Purcell. Turning a traditional liturgy of the hours on its head, a beautifully chosen selection of sacred and secular songs begins in the evening, and ends with the uplifting brightness of morning. The programme is completed with pieces by John Blow and Matthew Locke.
