The newest recording from Cantus, Song of a Czech, focuses on the works of Antonín Dvořák and Leoš Janáček, who were two of the giants of Czech musical history, as well as great personal friends. Both wrote music for male chorus, taking similar inspiration from folksongs of their native lands of Bohemia and Moravia, and from all over Eastern Europe. Janáček dedicated his “Four Male Partsongs” to Dvořák, who dubbed them “a gift with great promise, and in these times a truly special one.”

These lifelong musical conversations between two of the most beloved Czech composers undoubtedly played an integral role in shaping the national choral sound, and even the development of European choral music in the 20th century. With this new recording of repertoire by these “Bohemian brothers,” Cantus explores literature rarely heard outside of Eastern Europe, lending their trademark warmth, blend and exemplary musicianship to these fascinating and rarely recorded treasures of the choral canon.
