Cantores is a vocal ensemble specializing in primarily a cappella choral music from the 15th through 21st centuries. The ensemble was formed about nine years ago under the leadership of Peter Sipple. Carol Grey took over as director in 2009 after sharing the leadership role for three years.   We are a group of friends who love to sing. We meet in the homes of two of our members, making about equal amounts of music and fun. Our repertoire is drawn from madrigals, anthems, love songs, folk songs, spirituals, octavos, and occasional popular music in settings for two to eight voice parts.
