Über die Veranstaltung
In this Christmas concert, Vox Luminis opens the treasure chest of German baroque music dating from before J.S. Bach. Two of Bach’s father’s cousins, who were also among the most talented members of the music scene, provide a direct link. As well as the familiar In dulce jubiloby Michael Praetorius, Lionel Meunier has selected many 17th century musical gems by Scheidt, H. Praetorius, Schütz and others: icons of German music who combined rhetoric, the power of expression and masterly counterpoint in brilliant ways at the beginning of the Baroque. Each of them is more than worth rediscovering and will get you straight into the Christmas spirit. Vox Luminis is unrivalled in this repertoire. The magnificent polyphonic chorales and hymns are guaranteed to move you.
