Choir

Registered Charity No 1055674

Cantores Chamber is an auditioned choir of 26 singers who love to sing a varied programme of old and new sacred and secular choral music often in 8 or more parts. We are good sight readers and enjoy the challenge of new music. Our ambition is to put on quality performances.

Cantores is primarily an a capella choir but our repertoire includes some accompanied works.

We rehearse every Wednesday from 7.30-9.30 in the Reading Room at Rendcomb College, GL7 7HA.

We perform three programmes a year, each programme being performed twice in different venues. One of these programmes is performed with our own string ensemble and the other two with organ accompaniment. We have also performed with sackbuts and cornetts in the past.

Cantores is run by a committee which organises the concerts, venues and marketing so that the Musical Director can concentrate on the preparing the choir for musical performances of a high standard.

To raise funds for the choir we also provide, on request, a small choir, Cantabile, for weddings and funerals. This is organised by a member of the choir.

We are also keen to go on tour having had a successful trip to Belgium last year where we performed in the Sint Jakobskerk, Brugge.

Above all, we are a friendly and sociable group of people who really enjoy singing together.
