Description

Exsultemus (from the Latin for "let us rejoice") joins Boston's leading young singers to rejoice in performing early music's best-known favorites and rediscovered gems spanning the Medieval, Renaissance, and early Baroque periods. Exsultemus is modeled after small estate and chapel choirs and performs without conductor. It is committed to historically-informed performance, employing just intonation and period pronunciation based on scholarship by experts in the field. Since its founding by soprano and Andover native Shannon Canavin, Exsultemus has presented an annual concert series at the First Lutheran Church of Boston, where it is Ensemble-in-Residence, and in Andover, MA. Exsultemus has appeared with Connecticut Early Music Festival, Society for Historically Informed Performance, Cambridge Society for Early Music, Clark Art Institute, Wadsworth Atheneum, and WGBH Radio Boston.
