Weaving a magical spell in the darkened splendour of All Saints Church, the acclaimed Belgian a cappella choir Vox Luminis performs works from the English Renaissance in this atmospheric late-night concert. From light – exemplified by themes of birth, new beginnings, day and joyfulness – to the shadow of death, endings and night, some of the most popular works from the reign of Elizabeth I jostle alongside lesserknown gems from the golden age of English music.
