The Spirit Awakens

Our theme for this season has been selected especially for all of us who are emerging back into daily life in a post-pandemic world. Buoyed by a return to some sense of normalcy, we can rejoice in our spirits being lifted higher and higher.

Our fantastic trivia night with quiz master Righteous Jolly returns! Join us Friday evening, March 31, from 7:00-10:00 pm at the Cock’n’Bull Restaurant in Peddler’s Village. It will be a fun-filled evening of friendly competition, good food, raffles and the launch of our online auction. We will have tables of 8-10 people (bring your friends or we will help match you up). Through March 15, tickets are $40 per person; $50 thereafter. REGISTRATIONS CLOSE on March 21. Get your TICKETS HERE!

Our spring concerts, Spring, Sparkles and Sondheim, which will be filled with joyful and enthusiastic expressions of hope, will be May 5, 6, and 7. Love is in the air as Cantus Novus returns to its roots with two beloved Renaissance motets as well as works of Healey Willan, Gwyneth Walker and Eric Whitacre plus an homage to Doylestown’s own Stephen Sondheim. Mark your calendars now and stay tuned for ticketing details!

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.
