J.S. Bach’s Motets

The impressive Belgian choir Vox Luminis, meaning “voice of light,” has taken the early music world by storm. The singers offer five of Bach’s contrapuntal motets that demand the highest level of virtuosity to realize the musical textures elucidating the text. Bach goes far beyond merely expressing the words. Rather he explores their meaning in depth, highlighting their spiritual and metaphysical implications.
