“The refinement of Vox Luminis is never anything less than sublime.” (Gramophone Magazine)


   Now that fall is upon us, we look forward to our next Beacon Hill concert, Stabat Mater, Thursday  October 31, 6:00 p.m., when the vocal ensemble, VOX LUMINIS, under the able direction of Lionel Meunier, returns for its fifth concert with us. Based in Belgium and now in its 15th year, VL defines itself as “a group of soloists” in varied combinations, with continuo and additional instruments as needed. They are undoubtedly in the top tier of European Early Music ensembles with their rich and precise interpretations of this complex repertoire—primarily Italian, English, and German, spanning the 16th through the 18th centuries.

   For Halloween this year, there will be no tricks, only some real treats of sacred music by composers Claudio Monteverdi (Lamento della Ninfa), Domenico Scarlatti (Stabat Mater), Antonio Lotti (Crucifixus), Alessandro Della Ciaia (Lamentatio Virginis), and others. The centerpiece of the program is Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater (Mary standing at the foot of the cross), a beautiful work, with each of the 10 singers on their own individual part.
