KANTOREI

Lorraine Brugh, conductorKantorei

The Kantorei is Valparaiso University's select religious choir of 48 voices which serves as a choir of the Chapel of the Resurrection, specializes in festive liturgies, and sings a diverse repertoire of sacred music from chant to folk, multicultural and vernacular idioms. The Kantorei sings regularly for Sunday morning worship services, Reformation Vespers, Transfiguration Vespers, Holy Week services, Advent Vespers, Baccalaureate, and other services at the chapel. In the chapel they have introduced new musical settings of eucharistic liturgy, and have presented an array of global hymnody. In 2005 and 2006 the Kantorei presented training and educational events for Lutheran conferences and synods exploring new worship materials in anticipation of the 2006 hymnal publications by both the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. This spring’s tour will continue introducing Lutheran audiences to the Lutheran Service Book and Evangelical Lutheran Worship. The Kantorei sings regularly at the annual Institute of Liturgical Studies, and have performed with VU’s Chorale, Symphony Orchestra, and Chamber Concert Band. They recently completed their second CD, We See Light.
