Cantus Coelln

CANTUS COELLN –  Vocal Ensemble

"Cantus Cölln (...) plainly in their element, blazing a thrilling trail of dynamic declamation, manipulating colorific effect and always with a focused immediacy in the vocal line."

"Cantus Cölln is singing these works so beautifully that even adamant atheists will be converted."

"A keen sense of rhetoric, dramatic expression, stylistic perfection: Cantus Cölln possesses all that in abundance." — LE MONDE

Cantus Cölln was founded by lutenist Konrad Junghänel and is considered one of the most renowned vocal ensembles of its kind worldwide. Its core repertoire comprises the German and Italian vocal literature from the Renaissance and the Baroque. The ensemble sound is characterised by its flawless homogeneity, however, without ever losing the individual vocal timbres. The performances of Cantus Cölln impress with their perfect intonation, their sublime vocal transparency and at the same time their soulful expressiveness.
In numerous concerts around the globe Cantus Cölln has received great acclaim both from the public and the music press. The ensemble has recorded more than 35 CDs – both with standard baroque repertoire but also with previously neglected and rediscovered works. Many of the recordings have been awarded international prizes such as the Gramophone Award, the Diapason d’Or and the ECHO Klassik, and are seen as reference interpretations today.
