The Cantus Chamber Choir was established in the Ukrainian city of Uzhhorod in 1986. It has toured in Austria, Estonia, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Slovakia, Switzerland, and the United States. The choir is a laureate of international choral competitions in Debrecen, Hungary. The choir’s most important collaborations include performances of Ligeti’s Requiem conducted by Jonathan Nott in Austria and Germany in 2004. In 2007 Cantus performed the cantata Visions by Constantin Regamey in several Ukrainian cities.

The choir works with internationally acclaimed artists, including the conductors Hans-Michael Bouerle, Kent Nagano, David Willcocks, and Norway-based cellist Petro Sokach. Several CD releases of Cantus include programmes of Ukrainian sacred music (1994), Ukrainian classical and contemporary a cappella choral music (1996), Ukrainian Christmas carols Kolyadki (1998), and a large scale a cappella work The Sealed Angel by R. Shchedrin (2007).
