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 and around Glasgow.
Priding itself on high quality performances of renaissance polyphony, Cantus Firmus was initially founded as a choir 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, followed by a second featuring an eclectic mix of European polyphony, in June 2019.
The ensemble will be performing again during October, in a workshop with Gesualdo Six, led by Owain Park as part of the St Andrews Voices Festival. This event is free but ticketed and reservations can be made throuh the Voices Festival website.
