Vox Luminis; Lionel Meunier artistic director

Evening and Morning


  • Vox Luminis
  • Lionel Meunier artistic director

Lionel Meunier’s Vox Luminis brings a wealth of fresh ideas and insights to its Purcell interpretations, informed by extensive experience of performing works by the composer’s Central European contemporaries and deep immersion in his music.

The ensemble presents a programme of sacred songs and anthems by Henry Purcell and his teacher John Blow, concluding with the majestic verse anthem My heart is inditing, written for and first performed at the Coronation of James II in 1685.
