America's newest full-time vocal ensemble sings with one of the freshest and most engaging sounds in choral music today. From art songs to folk songs, from Smokey Robinson to Richard Strauss, Cantus' brilliant sound, innovative programming and heart-felt singing have garnered the highest praise from critics and audiences alike. The singers—solo quality all—produce a wonderfully warm, gutsy and masculine sounds as well as a kind of smooth delivery, overtly emotionality, and uncanny sense of ensemble. They have a peerless gusto—a sense of boundless joy in music making. "Cantus' sonic blend was so beaming and elastic that it seemed to originate as a single, gorgeous variegated voice": The Washington Post.
