"... Les chanteurs sont regroupés autour de leur chef et claveciniste Frank Agsteribbe. Ces voix, au nombre de six, réunies sous le sigle cantoLX, en solo ou par 2 ou 3, délivrent une qualité de chant raffinée, dans un style adéquat et éloquent ; les deux ténors, entre autres, font merveille. Par ses improvisations d'un langage très actuel, l'organiste Maurice Clément nous transporte dans un monde surnaturel, comme une ouverture sidérale. L'effet de contraste voulu est saisissant."

cantoLX is a Luxembourg based professional vocal ensemble. They focus on baroque music, but also sing renaissance, contemporary and 19th century music. Conductor, keyboard player and composer Frank Agsteribbe is the artistic director.

They believe in a flexible geometry: it is their basic statement to work from a kernel of 5-6 soloists, extending to 12-16 for a chamber choir, and developing up to 40 professional singers to form a romantic choir.
cantoLX has twice been invited to perform at the MAfestival Bruges and also appeared at the Flanders Festival and the Festival Oude Muziek in Utrecht. Two collaborations with OPL were followed by a Vivaldi concert with baroque orchestra B’Rock.

They have their own festival “Passions et Lamentations” during Eastern time and participate in the festival “Stille Kunst”, together with Lucilin and the Abbaye de Neumunster, Luxembourg Grund. Their first CD “Songs of Irrelevance and Passion” - released on the label ET’CETERA including works by Girolamo Frescobaldi and John Cage was nominated by the ICMA.
In Spring 2015, they released a new album entitled "Meta(M)Orpheus", always on the label ET’CETERA.
