The Kantorei, a select religious choir of 30 voices, sings a diverse repertoire of sacred music from chant to folk, multicultural, and vernacular idioms.
The Kantorei serves as a choir of the Chapel of the Resurrection and specializes in festive liturgies. The ensemble 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.
When the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America published new hymnals, the Kantorei presented training and educational events for Lutheran conferences and synods exploring the new worship materials. Their tour continued this work, introducing Lutheran audiences to the Lutheran Service Book and Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
The Kantorei sings regularly at the annual Institute of Liturgical Studies and has performed with Valpo’s Chorale, Symphony Orchestra, and Chamber Concert Band. They recently completed their second CD, “We See Light,” which is available in the Valparaiso University Center for the Arts online store.
