Vox Luminis

Sunday, November 19, 2023

On WCRB In Concert with the Boston Early Music Festival, the Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis joins the BEMF Orchestra in two choral masterpieces. In Ode for St. Cecilia’s Day, Handel sets English poet John Dryden's words of celebration of the patron saint of music and her role in conjoining the disparate elements of the universe. In Magnificat, Bach's expression of Mary's words of devotion to the divine is one of his most riveting sacred choral works.
