Repertory:

J. S. Bach: St. Matthew's Passion, BWV 244

Vox Luminis, conducted by Lionel Meunier, is possibly one of the world’s most important choirs and orchestras in baroque music. 

St. Mathew’s Passion by J.S. Bach, is a spiritual monument that has been consecrated as an essential work for many generations around Easter, and has maintained its idyll with the Palau de la música catalana since it was the venue of its premiere in Spain, more than a century ago. A fundamental part even  of the birth of the “Orfeó Català”, it gathers year after year a faithful audience that always ends up believing in transcendence. An extraordinary musical journey that allows us to reflect on redemption, struggle and defiance, betrayal and forgiveness, love and sacrifice, compassion and pity. A milestone of Western culture and of our own heritage.
