The 8-voice, all-male, a cappella ensemble Cantus is known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovative programming and riveting performances. The Washington Post hailed the Cantus sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and referred to the “spontaneous grace” of its music making.
