The Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis specializes in English, Italian and German repertoire from the 17th and early 18th century and is internationally acclaimed for its unique sound. A core of vocal soloists is supplemented, depending on the repertoire, with a deluxe continuo ensemble, solo instruments, or a complete period instrument orchestra. This week Oliver is joined by the ensemble’s founder and artistic director, bass and recorder player Lionel Meunier.
