Cantemus SingersCantemus Singers was established in 2008 by our conductor Michael Erdman, to help expand Toronto’s exposure to and appreciation of Renaissance and early Baroque secular vocal music. Our 12-voice a cappella ensemble focuses mainly on the interesting and evocative madrigals, lieder, chansons and villancicos of the 16th century. We also perform religious works, often the 5- to 8-part compositions less often heard by Toronto audiences.
Our 2017/18 season begins November 25 and 26, as we perform Christmas music from England and France, including Charpentier’s magnificent Messe de Minuit pour Noël. On March 3 and 4, “The Virgin Queen” explores the music of the Elizabethan period, featuring works by Tallis, Taverner and Byrd. On May 5 and 6, our program “The Glories of Rome” focuses on works of the two titans of the Renaissance, the madrigals of Marenzio and the religious masterpieces of Palestrina.
Performances at Church of the Holy Trinity (10 Trinity Square – Eaton Centre) and St. Aidan’s Anglican Church (70 Silver Birch Ave. at Queen St. E.). Check our website for times.
