Laudibus

Already hailed by audiences and critics as one of the finest chamber choirs in the world, Laudibus has existed for just a few years. The secret of the unique blend and flexibility of this dynamic young ensemble is the fact that everyone of its twenty-two members is selected by audition from the 130-strong National Youth Choir, and brings to its singing the skills of listening and adaptation which come from many hours of intensive rehearsal together.

Laudibus has quickly acquired a reputation for the breadth of its programming and its willingness to tackle difficult new works, and has also given several world premieres including the music of Gavin Bryars, Giles Swayne and Richard Allain.

In the Tolosa International Choral Contest 1998, in the section for amateur and professional vocal ensembles up to sixteen voices, Laudibus were winners with 95%. Additionally the choir scored the highest marks of all the 36 choirs which entered the contest.
