Cantus Firmus: Sacred Europe

About Cantus Firmus: Sacred Europe

The European Renaissance witnessed the creation of some of the most ethereal musical sounds ever to be heard, reverberating for centuries around cathedrals and chapels in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and further afar.

This June, however, you have the chance to hear ten-voice Renaissance polyphony consort Cantus Firmus performing these exquisite works in Glasgow. Sit back and absorb the sonorities of this young, Glasgow-based ensemble in their latest concert, entitled 'Sacred Europe', as part of this year's West End Festival.

The ensemble's diverse programme explores music from a range of well-known and lesser-known composers of early Western choral music including Antonio Lotti, Carlo Gesualdo, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Jean Mouton and Felice Anerio.

ABOUT THE CHOIR

Cantus Firmus is one of Scotland's newest vocal ensembles. Founded in 2015, the choir has ten experienced core members who are each based in Glasgow and are passionate about Renaissance polyphony.

The consort was initially founded for the purpose of singing services of Choral Evensong in Glasgow. However, it became clear that the ensemble was capable of singing a wide choral repertoire, and the idea of staging concerts soon developed.

In November 2018, the choir gave its first official concert of English Renaissance Choral Music at St. Mary's Episcopal Cathedral in Glasgow. The choir's next concert, featuring Renaissance polyphony from around Europe, will take place in June 2019. The choir is also set to release new video and audio recordings in coming months.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cantus Firmus: Sacred Europe are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
