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 enter-taining! 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.
