Cantemus Cum Spiritu at Bristol – Cathedral 18th & 19th February 2023

Sold Out

Cantemus Cum Spiritu events are for advanced singers, and exist to allow people who are considered leaders within their own choirs to have  the chance to come together to sing music to a high level. It is taken as read that, if you choose to apply for a Cantemus event, you will arrive either fully prepared musically or able to sight-read the music. The expected standard is that each singer will be capable of holding their own line, without the aid of singers around them, in order that, at the start of each event, we can hit the ground running and take your singing to another level.

Cantemus Cum Spiritu exists to help singers to find the joy in church music in the hope that the experience of working with other singers of a similar level will have a knock-on effect on the health and strength of their home choirs. We start each event from the point of being confident that we know the music, so that we have the chance to really explore the music and to enable all the singers to reach their expressive potential.

We will be singing 3 services at Bristol Cathedral on 18th & 19th February.
