In Earth, in Heaven

Nature Unwrapped

Lassus Lamentationes Ieremiae Prophetae
Lassus Missa pro defunctis

‘The refinement of Vox Luminis is never anything less than sublime’ Gramophone

‘Fashions in early music performance come and go, but the Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis, directed by Lionel Meunier, has established itself as a new star of the scene… a transparent, flexible, indeed luminous sound’ Observer


Allow Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis to immerse you in a meditative tapestry of voices.

Orlando de Lassus set the texts of the Lamentations about the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC, in his stylistic severity supporting the poetic eloquence of the poetry. The overthrow of the city by Nebuchadnezzar II and the deportation of a considerable portion of its inhabitants, initiated a movement of exile and diaspora, something familiar today in the wake of catastrophic events linked to climate change. All these changes are shifting Earth into a ‘new state’, an earth less hospitable to life.

Continuing the theme of mourning, the ensemble will also present Lassus’ impressive five-voice requiem, Missa pro defunctis, with its curious bass intonations.
