Sensational winners of Gramophone's overall Recording of the Year award in 2012, Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis has quickly won a reputation for its deeply expressive and meticulously prepared performances. For us they perform funeral music of profound nobility and beauty by two of the greatest masters of the 17th century: Heinrich Schütz, the father of German Baroque music; and 'English Orpheus' Henry Purcell.

'Warm and resonant ... they sing this 300-year-old music with the freshness and ardour of true believers.'
The Independent
