Cantus Novus is an auditioned chamber choir based in Bucks County. Founded in 2000 as an intimate group of choral friends gathering in homes to share a love of music, Cantus Novus has grown to be an established musical presence in the Delaware Valley.
Our musical focus can best be described as "roots and wings," with programming spanning several centuries, honoring our "roots," the rich a cappella choral tradition that springs from the motets of the Renaissance - while our "wings" present audiences with wide-ranging musical offerings from the best of contemporary composers. We are honored to be Artists-in-Residence at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, in Yardley, and regularly perform in venues throughout Bucks County and elsewhere in the Delaware Valley.
Cantus Novus is sponsored in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Join us for our 2016-17 season, Sing We All With Joy. Ticketing information coming soon!
