Formed in September 2014, Lux Musicae London musically explores the transition from the renaissance to the early baroque. The diverse instrumentation, (harp, lute, recorders, voices and viol and violin) enables the group to deploy the huge range of period instrumental colours and practices through a strongly expressive and rhetorically led vocal approach to the texts and melodies of the era.
The programmes reflect this approach, connecting the visual arts, poetry and philosophy with the music of the turbulent sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
They have performed various programmes throughout London including Blackheath Halls, St John’s Church Hoxton, St James’s Sussex Gardens and the Wren Church St Mary at Hill as part of their lunchtime concert series. The group has been selected to be part of the Brighton Early Music Festival Live 2016/17 scheme and performed within the festival last November. Later that month Lux Musicae reached the finals of the Concours internationale de Journées de Musiques Anciennes in Paris.
