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"

    "What consistently turns Cantamus concerts from very good to outstanding is [the] brilliant choice of repertoire"



 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.
