Kerst vóór Bach

Vox Luminis

Kerst vóór Bach

Vox Luminis

Because there is so much more brilliant baroque music to lighten the dark December days, besides Weihnachtsoratorium, Vox Luminis created a Christmas program with songs from before Johann Sebastian. Two cousins from Bach's father, who was also part of the musical top in life, form an immediate link. But also Praetorius, Schein, Scheidt and Schütz are present: German musical icons who brought together rethoric, expression and contrapuntal mastership almost a hundred years before in a brilliant manner.

(This concert is part of the series Oude Muziek (Old music))
