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.
Cantus Novus is the premier forty-voice choir in Bucks County dedicated to choral artistry and offering highly-valued educational programs.
Cantus Novus seeks to create musical experiences characterized by artistic excellence, distinctive sound, and engaging programming.
We work to nurture and develop the skills of our choral musicians, to increase community appreciation for the choral arts, and to encourage and support the arts through public performances and collaboration with other artists and arts organizations. 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. 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.
