Lux Beata, the blessed light, that which illuminates with music the darkness and gloom of our daily toils.
With a shared focus on ancient music, from the 16th to the 18th centuries, as well as modern compositions and traditional music, we strive to create experiences that transcend and open new worlds and sounds to our listeners.
Founded in 2015 by Fredrik Hildebrand, the group centers around the viol in its different sizes and combinations, from the pure viol consort in three to six parts, to instrumental ensembles combining it with violins, wind instruments, keyboards, lutes, harps and voices. The different vocal and instrumental constellations are endless, and only the need for coherency in on-stage performance dictates our instruments and repertoire.
The combination of ancient, traditional and contemporary music is of great importance to us. It opens up new possibilities in emotions and expressions during a program, and creates new shades, colors and dynamics for the audience to be pulled into.
