Cor Cantus means "Heart of the Song" and is an experienced mixed chamber choir from Copenhagen. 12 men and women - mostly with long musical and choir experience - enjoy singing and having fun together. We are performing regularly in Copenhagen and other parts of the country. Cor Cantus' repertoire is varyied and consists of music from different centuries and countries, classical and folk songs, musical, evergreens and popular music.
