Vox Lucens Concert on December 13: The Story of Mary

Join us at Church of Our Saviour for a concert by Vox Lucens on Sunday, December 13 at 2:00 PM.

For centuries, composers have been inspired by the richness of Mary’s life journey from obscure poverty to exaltation as the Queen of Heaven. Vox Lucens performs luminous a cappella music from the Renaissance, including works about Mary’s mother, Anne; angelic announcements of the births of John the Baptist and Jesus; the visit of the three kings; Mary’s ordeal at the foot of the cross; the resurrection; and Mary’s assumption into heaven.

Highlights include Palestrina’s double-choir Ave Regina Caelorum, Victoria’s exciting Gabriel Archangelus, Gabrieli’s uplifting Magnificat, Lassus’ heart-rending Stabat Mater, and Guerrero’s triumphant Exaltata Est.

Vox Lucens is a 14-member vocal ensemble that came together in 1998 to explore the Renaissance sacred and secular a capella repertoire. For more on the group, visit their website: www.voxlucens.net.

Free-will offerings accepted; all proceeds will go to Church of Our Saviour.
