Cantiones is a mixed-voice chamber choir of enthusiastic singers, based in the Shropshire Market Town of Oswestry.
The choir performs three main concerts per year, and under the baton of Musical Director Martin Bussey, work hard to maintain a high standard of performance.
The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings in Oswestry.
We are regularly accompanied in rehearsals by our former musical director, of 17 years Gerry Howe who is also organist at St Oswald's and the well known Oswestry musician and former MD Chris Symons accompanies us in performance. The choir normally performs one or two substantive concerts a year and a popular carol concert at Christmas. The repertoire includes both sacred and secular music from the 16th to 20th century performed in up to 8 parts.
