Vox Luminis

We are only too pleased to place him on a pedestal during this festival edition: Cristóbal de Morales, the emperor of Iberian polyphony. Born in Seville around 1500, he went down in history with music that combines the glorious Franco-Flemish counterpoint with elements from Spanish traditional repertoires.

With the Officium Defunctorum and the five-part Missa Pro Defunctis, Morales established milestones in the genre of funeral music. Publications and copies can be found all over Europe, and even the New World followed the Morales trend: his Requiem is said to have graced the memorial ceremonies for Emperor Charles V in Mexico in 1599. This majestic diptych is the generous treat offered by brand new twentysomething Vox Luminis!

About the performers

The ensemble Vox Luminis, consisting of a very international cast of soloists, focuses on vocal music written between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries.Most of the group met at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. The ensemble operates independently but also collaborates with instrumental groups such as Les Muffatti. Their CDs on the Ricercar label have been received with enthusiasm, including Schütz’ Musikalische Exequien, and English Royal Funeral Music, with works by Purcell and others. Vox Luminis was artist in residence during the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht of 2015.
