An a cappella choir of about 20 able singers directed by Richard Emms.
Our repertoire is almost entirely unaccompanied, in anything from 4 to 10 parts. It ranges from English and European madrigals to music from the 21st century; from the challenging to the disarmingly simple, and from the deepest tingle-factor to the utterly frivolous.
We perform for music societies, for charitable and private events in the South Midlands and the North Cotswolds. Often our programmes are in collaboration with Three's Company, a group of professional actors who provide witty and apposite readings interspersed among the music.
Cantamus is also in demand for its liturgical performances of masses by Byrd, Palestrina and Victoria.
