Trinitatis Kantori  

choir

Trinitatis Kantori Chamber Choir is an independent concert choir regularly associated with Christian IV’s old Baroque church Trinitatis Kirke with its astronomical Round Tower. The choir was founded in 1993 by the conductor Per Enevold and the organist Inge Bønnerup, and consists today of about 35 singers. The organist and precentor at Trinitatis, Søren Christian Vestergaard, has conducted the choir since 2013. Over the years Trinitatis Kantori has given a long succession of concerts, several of which have been broadcast by the Danish broadcasting corporation DR. Many of the concerts have been held in the Trinitatis Church and in the beautiful library of the Round Tower, but the Kantori also gives concerts in other places both in Denmark and abroad. In 1999 the choir won First Prize in the category “chamber choir” in the European radio choir competition “Let the Peoples Sing”. The concert tours of the Kantori have often gone to music festivals all over Europe, and in 1999 the choir was on tour in Japan. Besides a rich a cappella repertoire they often perform major works together with an orchestra, and the programme often includes masterworks such as Bach’s Magnificat, St. John Passion, St. Matthew Passion, Mass in B minor and the Christmas Oratorio, as well as Mozart’s Requiem. Monteverdi’s Vesperae beatae Mariae Virginis has also been performed several times in collaboration with specialists on original instruments, besides the requiems of Brahms and Verdi. The CD of Niels la Cour’s music is the twelfth CD released by Trinitatis Kantori.

Niels la Cour: Works for Choir & Organ
"I can tell you that Denmark’s Niels La Cour (b 1944) is a composer whose sacred choral works seek out the gentler elements of faith, and that his penchant for creating a sense of spiritual calm extends to his writing for the King of Instruments."
