Vox Luminis - Purcell: King Arthur - Opera

[Vox Luminis’s] main strength likes in the capability of all its members to step forward as soloists. This works particularly well in a work like King Arthur with its many small cameo roles … But it is the fine ensemble, precise chording and articulation in the ensembles and choruses that are the chief glory of the performance, the use of Francophone singers if anything accentuating the clarity of diction. Among the soloists the sweetly-voiced high tenor Olivier Berten steals the honours.
