Solistensemblen Vox Scanienis has been active in the Malmö-Lund region for over 15 years. The ensemble was founded by Peter Wallin in connection with a television series production called Andetag (Breath) which was broadcast on Swedish television in 2002 and 2003. From the start the ensemble’s repertoire was comprised primarily by music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods but with time it has extended to include both Gregorian chants and contemporary musical pieces by Arvo Pärt, Johan Magnus Sjöberg, Olivier Messiaen and others. A number of compositions have been written with the ensemble directly in mind by Nils Tykesson, Stefan Klaverdal and Johannes Johansson. In the last few years, Vox Scaniensis has performed, several times per year, in the series Tidigt i Lund (Early in Lund) with music by Carissimi, Schütz, Monteverdi, Buxtehude, Purcell, Händel, Bach and others.
