Next performances: Anglican Arts Festival, Konvikt Centre, 5, Avenue Marie-Thérèse, Luxembourg City, on Sunday, 25 February 2024 at 3.30 (music by Tallis, Goudimel, Palestrina and Victoria); Walferdange church at 5.00 on 9 June 2024; Strassen church at 5.00 on 16 June 2024.

The Art of Music's most recent concert was on Sunday, 22 October at 5.00 in Waldbillig church, with a programme focusing particularly on William Byrd, to mark the 400th anniversary of the composer's death. Sadly, this was the ensemble's last ever concert with Edward Seymour, who had been its bass and its true foundation for the past 30 years. We wish him well in his thoroughly deserved retirement.

The Art of Music is looking for an alto and a baritone, and there could be an opening for an additional bass. Please see under News.

The Art of Music is a small vocal ensemble based in Luxembourg, specialising particularly in the performance of music from the Renaissance. Since 1997, Josy Peschon has recorded more than 10 CDs of its concert performances, and information about them can be found on his website, Flash Compact Editioun.

After a pause necessitated by the Covid pandemic, the group gave its next public performances at the Anglican Arts Festival in Luxembourg City in 2022 and 2023. These were followed by concerts in Walferdange church on 18 June 2023 and Waldbillig church on 22 October 2023.
