Cantemus Songbook and Octavos Series

A Collection of Choral Music

The songbook project Cantemus was started in 1992 to assist choral conductors in finding fresh, accessible, and interesting international repertoire. The songbooks contain collections of medium-to-easy choral music. Most of the music is relatively new and was selected from repertoire performed at international choir festivals and competitions. All four of the Cantemus songbooks, along with CD recordings of the pieces contained in the books, are available from the publisher: Gehrmans Musikförlag.Starting in summer 2005, a new octavo collection is available under the editing of the IFCM Multicultural and Ethnic Commission, published by Earthsong.
