In the Baroque era, the low or bass voice was crucial to a musical performance.  Performers relied on these lowest voices (figured bass) for important interpretational information. A profusion of works before 1800 utilizing only bass instruments proves that this register could also be autonomous.

   Ensemble Bassorum vox performs in variable combination on a variety of historical bass instruments.  It is one of the few ensembles that have taken on the challenge of researching and performing more obscure literature.

   This  young ensemble has already received attention through its spirited performances.  Bassorum vox won 1st prize at the 8th Interational Biagio-Marini Competition for Early Music in 2006 and 2nd prize, as well as De Noorderkerkprijs at the 14th International Van Wassenaer Competition in 2006.  The ensemble was invited to perform at XXVII Festival de Musica Antigua Barcelona, Fest der Innenhofe & Museumsnachte in Freiburg, and Holland Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht ,  and has been broadcasted on Radio ORF (Austria), Radio Catalunya (Spain), Radio 4 U and Radio Netherland Worldwide (Holland).

   The members of Bassorum vox performed with or under the direction of Masters of early music such as Jordi Savall, Rolf Lislevand, Philippe Pierlot, Lorenz Duftschmid, Christophe Rousset, Patrick Cohen-Akeninen, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Charles Toet, Anton Steck and Gottfried von der Goltz.
