Vox Luminis

Part of York Early Music Festival 2024

Scroll to explore

In 1641, Monteverdi published his Selva morale e spirituali, a major retrospective of sacred works that he produced over nearly three decades as musical director at St Mark’s Basilica in Venice. Covering a wide range of styles and emotions, the works make use of the expressive resources he had developed as a master of the church motet, secular madrigal, and opera. Vox Luminis’s selection ranges from large-scale, colourfully accompanied motets to intimate creations for just a few singers and players.

The ensemble Vox Luminis, led by Lionel Meunier, specialises in English, Italian and German repertoire from the 17th and early 18th century and is internationally acclaimed for its unique sound.

“Vox Luminis, whose name is enough in itself to spark a tingle of anticipation” – Gramophone

Tickets for the concert can be booked HERE.


This year, the York Early Music Festival is celebrating the wealth of musical creativity through the human voice and song, a combination prized for its power to communicate with us most directly; and through metamorphosis, the inspiration behind the creation, reimagination and reconstruction of music across time.
