Vox Renaissance Consort, Voices & Period Instruments

St Martin-in-the-Fields, Chestnut Hill

The Vox Renaissance Consort returns for an uplifting program of Renaissance motets, sacred choral works celebrating the Christian feast of Candlemas. As in our Renaissance Noël, the singers are joined by a small ensemble of period instruments and attired in lush Renaissance dress, making this delightful evening a feast for the eyes as well as for the ears.
