December can be a time of joy and love. Gifts given and received. Celebrations of food and family flourish. Cultures collide in peace and harmony to celebrate diversity and traditions. In this spirit, Cantus Novus presents an outstanding choral-orchestral tour-de-force from composer Dan Forrest. Jubilate Deo, for choir, soloists and chamber orchestra is a seven-movement statement from the Book of Psalms performed in English, Latin, Hebrew, Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, and Spanish.
Naturally, the concert includes seasonal favorites sure to bring a smile. Join the singers of Cantus Novus for a season of beauty. A season where love and jubilation are affirmed, where equity and peace take center stage. A time to be affirmed, sustained, and reminded that life truly is a treasure; that beauty does indeed surround us if we only take the time to let it in.

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.
“The May 5th concert was upbeat, inspirational and downright entertaining! Next time they lift up their voices in our area, you really must attend.”
“Concert was amazing. Looking forward to your next performance.”
“Excellent intonation, near-perfect diction, beautiful dynamic range and very musical.”
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.
