Studium Chorale was founded in 1972 and is today one of the most influential chamber choirs in the Netherlands. The composition of the choir varies from eight to forty singers depending on the music to be performed. A very broad repertoire includes five centuries of chorale music, from Renaissance polyphony to recent commissions. Studium Chorale performs on a regular basis both within the Netherlands and elsewhere, and records for television, radio and for CD. The choir is subsidised by the Regional Council of Limburg Province and the City of Maastricht.
