Cantamus is a small group of singers whose aim is to select and perform the very best, often unfamiliar, sacred, secular and consort music, and bring it through occasional performances to a wider audience in the west Dorset and east Devon areas. Our mission is to offer sublime music, sung to a high standard, to those who are perhaps unaware of its sheer beauty and range of emotions.


A few reactions from audience members at our concerts:

    "Beautiful - wide ranging and presenting not-so-familiar music. Thank you"

    "We greatly enjoyed your singing and look forward to future events"

    "A really pleasant and delightful evening all round, just right for the summer, and enhanced by the food and drink"



 We are currently looking for a new tenor to join our choir. You would need to have some ability to read music, and there will be a short, informal audition. Please contact Andrew Davey on
01297 33534 if you are interested or for more information. We perform three concert series a year (usually a total of nine concerts), with about six Thursday-evening rehearsals per series.
