Biography

Literally meaning 'rooster song' or 'cock crow', Gallicantus takes its name from monastic antiquity. Dedicated to Renaissance music and directed by Gabriel Crouch, the membership of this early music group boasts a wealth of experience in consort singing. The group is bound by a shared love of communicating text, and creates performances which draw out unifying themes within apparently diverse repertoire; to this end they are as meticulous about providing context and insight for audiences as they are about crafting interpretations of the music they love. Gallicantus has performed in many significant venues and festivals in the UK (Wigmore Hall, Spitalfields Festival, York Early Music Festival, Chapel Royal), Europe (Germany, Austria, Poland, Italy, Belgium) and the USA where they hold regular residencies at Princeton University. Gallicantus regularly releases acclaimed benchmark recordings on the Signum label, which form the basis of their concert programmes. They have received 'Editor's Choice' and nominations for the coveted Gramophone Magazine Award.
