Canzone Choir  

ensemble

The Canzone Choir was founded in 1980 with the aim of recording rarely heard high-quality music - mainly Danish - on gramophone records and CDs. Unlike other choirs with a traditional way of working, the Canzone Choir is a project choir, which recruits its singers from professional and semi-professional ensembles in Denmark; its size varies from about 10 to 50 singers, depending on the task in hand. In the smallest variant, called the Canzone Vocal Ensemble, the choir, conducted by Frans Rasmussen, has for example made the first recordings of Carl Nielsen’s and Robert Schumann’s collected works for mixed choir a cappella, an anthology of Danish songs (4 CDs), and a first collection of Danish medieval ballads in settings by several of the greatest Danish composers.
