Cappella Nova and its medieval offshoot ensemble, Canty, has made 18 recordings, including ten of Medieval and Renaissance music for the Sanctuary Classics (ASV – now part of Universal) Gaudeamus label, all of which are ‘world premieres in modern times’. The group is particularly well-known for championing the music of the 16th century Scottish polyphonist, Robert Carver, and has already recorded two critically acclaimed albums of the sacred choral music of James MacMillan for Linn. Besides appearances in many British festivals, the group has toured many times abroad, including several visits to Germany and France, and tours in Ireland, Belgium, Hungary, Russia and the USA. Among Cappella Nova’s awards are several Enterprise Awards from the Performing Rights Society and a Glenfiddich ‘Living Scotland’ Award for their ground-breaking performances of Scottish early music.
On St Andrew’s Day 1998 the group premiered a specially commissioned work by William Sweeney in the presence of HM The Queen at the opening of the National Museum of Scotland. The group has shared the platform with a wide range of groups and artists including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Evelyn Glennie, John Sessions, The Scottish Brass Ensemble, St Petersburg Baroque Brass, Tom Fleming, Concerto Caledonia, Sheena Wellington, Sister Sledge, Theatre Cryptic, Kim Edgar and The Scottish Ensemble.
