Vox Early Music Ensemble is a professional a cappella ensemble dedicated to performing early (primarily Medieval and Renaissance) vocal music. Founded in Ann Arbor, MI in 2000 by Executive Director, Whitnie Crown, the ensemble has been under the artistic direction of Christopher Wolverton since it's inception. Members of Vox have sung professionally as soloists and ensemble artists with some of the most prestigious vocal music programs, including Chanticleer, St. Paul's Cathedral (London, UK), The Rose Ensemble, Conspirare, St. Martin's Chamber Choir, the Wavely Consort, Seraphic Fire, and the Santa Fe Desert Chorale.

Vox quickly garnered accolades for the high level of their performance and won numerous awards and grants in support of their innovative programming. In 2002, Vox was presented with a Professional Development Award from Early Music America, one of only two awards given nationally to early music vocal ensembles. In conjunction with this award, the ensemble was featured in their winning performance of Dufay's Nuper Rosarum Flores, on the nationally syndicated radio program, Harmonia.

Vox served as resident artists at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Ann Arbor. Presenting full concert seasons of early music, Vox has performed by invitation on numerous concert series and was voted "Best Classical Artist" by readers of Current Magazine. The ensemble's debut recording, Josquin and the Lost Generation, has enjoyed generous air play on classical music stations throughout the U.S.

In 2006, Vox and Christopher Wolverton, along with collaborator, Professor Honey Meconi of the Eastman School of Music, received the Noah Greenberg Award, given for distinguished contributions to historical performance practice. The award was in support of and culminated with a scholarly article, live performances, and the recording of Extreme Singing: La Rue Requiem and other Low Masterpieces of the Renaissance.
