Bach: Complete Motets (Ricercar CD)

Vox Luminis gravitate easily to the contemplative, never over-projecting the dramatic implications of the texts… Es ist nun aus – a deeply touching devotional aria with each verse ending with ‘Welt, gute Nacht’ – is worth the price of the discs alone.”
Gramophone Magazine, (July 2015)

This talented Belgian ensemble continues to go from strength to strength. This collection of funerary, Passiontide and Christmas motets by Johann, Johann Christian and Johann Michael Bach cherry-picks some delightful works, giving singers and players plenty of opportunity to shine. Excellent sound and presentation.’ Awarded 5*.

Keiser: Brockes-Passion (Ramée CD)

Classical music award winner in Belgium’s “Les Octaves de la Musique 2015”

“This recording is the fruit of collaboration between Belgian Baroque band Les Muffatti and Gramophone Award-winning vocal ensemble Vox Luminis; bass Lionel Meunier takes responsibility for his group of singers but the overall performance is conducted with ideal rhetorical solemnity and dramatic intensity by Peter Van Heyghen.”
Gramophone Magazine, (August 2014)

English Royal Funeral Music (Ricercar CD)

“Once again, Vox Luminis have touched the heart with their calm interpretative intelligence and vocal beauty.”
Gramophone Magazine, (June 2013)

“Baroque Vocal Recording of the Year & Recording of the Year – Gramophone Awards 2012”

“A marvellous disc.”
Gramophone Magazine, (2012)

A beautifully balanced ensemble of individual yet blended voices… Lionel Meunier’s thoughtful direction makes a serene and rewarding disc.”
The Observer, (July 2011)

“This is an exceptional new Schütz recording… Meunier’s pacing feels utterly natural, and both the inventiveness and meditative repose of Schütz’s music comes across marvellously. In short, if you are looking for a recording of this beautiful and daring work, this new Ricercar disc is the one to choose.”
