Vox Luminis (artistic director: Lionel Meunier)
L’Achéron (artistic director: François Joubert-Caillet)

A Belgian historical vocal ensemble and a French early music instrumental group perform church works by German and Italian Baroque masters. The programme sounds hugely promising even without mentioning names. But all the more so in the knowledge of the two founders and leaders: Lionel Meunier, who earlier sang with Collegium Vocale Gent, set up Vox Luminis in 2004, while François Joubert-Caillet, the most excellent viola da gamba player, recruited the members of L’Achéron in 2009. Composers of the works on the programme, minor and great masters of the 17-18th century – Lutheran Heinrich Schütz who worked in Venice, Dresden and Denmark, Catholic priest-diplomat Angelo Steffani, and Johann Caspar Kerll, who composed the mass played during the coronation of Emperor Leopold I –  are representative of the incredible multifaceted aspects of their age.
