Gaudeamus

 

Gaudeamus is an adult chamber choir of professional and semi-professional free lance singers formed in 1992. This choir performs in conjunction with Chorus Angelicus, providing the alto, tenor and bass parts, and giving the younger choristers the opportunity to experience singing such masterworks as Bach’s St. John Passion and Mass in BMinor, Handel’s Dixit Dominus, Britten’s Saint Nicholas, and Schnittke’s Requiem. In recent years, programs featuring Brahms’ A German Requiem, Finzi’s Lo, the full final sacrifice, David Briggs’Requiem (CT Premiere) and the MagnificatMissa Brevis and In Sure And Certain Hope by Nicholas White have been presented to enthusiastic audiences throughout Connecticut. Gaudeamus also performs alone, without Chorus Angelicus, and has recently presented works as diverse as Monteverdi’s Missa Brevis, Bach’s Jesu, meine Freude, Herbert Howells’ Requiem, Benjamin Britten’s Rejoice In The Lamb and the Connecticut Premiere of Nicholas White’s The Aim Was Song.  Gaudeamus is also know for its exploration of world choral music with instrumentalists from all over the world, and is featured with folk legend Pete Seeger on his Grammy Award-winning CD, Pete. More recently, the group was invited by SONY/Pioneer to record an album of a capella masterworks to demonstrate the newest surround-sound technology. Entitled Sacred Feast, this DMP release has won high praise from Billboard Magazine, Pro Audio Magazine, and high-end audiophiles the world over.
