Cantores is a vocal ensemble performing primarily a cappella choral music from the 15th through 21st centuries. The ensemble was formed ten 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 some 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 popular music in settings for two to eight voice parts.
The current program is called Coming and Going. Previous performances have included A Grand Night for Singing; Music of the Four Seasons; A Celebration of Love, madrigals to vocal jazz; A Celebration of Psalms, psalm settings from Germany, Italy, Great Britain and the Americas; and From Dusk to Dawn, with selections describing things that transpire during the night. Other programs have included a celebration of folk songs by Brahms, Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, and others; the first set of Brahms’ Liebeslieder Walzer, accompanied by one piano for four hands; and music of the Renaissance, a period when music making for the voice reached an apex that may never again be matched.
