Cantamus is an a cappella choir of about 24 able singers based in Shipston-on-Stour. 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.
“It was perfect. The balance of reading and music was just right, and the singing was superb.”
