Lux Musicae London formed in 2014 to musically explore the transition from the Renaissance to the Early Baroque. With their diverse instrumentation (harp, lute, recorders, voices and viol) and their expressive and rhetorically led approach to text and melody, the group enjoys an exciting range of instrumental colours and performance practices. Their programmes reflect this, connecting the visual arts, poetry and philosophy with the music of the turbulent sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In 2016 Lux Musicae London were selected as finalists in the Concours internationale de Journées de Musiques Anciennes in Paris and participated in the BREMF Live! Scheme 2016/17. Since performing in the Brighton Early Music Festival they have been in increasing demand, performing in various festivals around Europe, including the Fringe of the MA Festival Brugge, the Fabulous Fringe of Utrecht’s Oude Muziek Festival and the International Young Artists Presentation in AMUZ: Laus Polyphoniae Festival in Antwerp.
