Cantate! Home


Cantate! has adopted "Cum Decore" as a signature piece
and sings it as a Preludium prior to each concert.
It describes the majesty in music through song.


Tilman Susato, Antwerpen 1551
sanpassing: jos van den Borre

Cum decore et amore, cum splendore, cum ardore,
cum vigore, cum calore, voce cantate melodica.
Gaudia mirifica magnificate in musica.

With beauty and with love,
with splendor and with vigor
we sing together in a melodious voice;
There is joy, wonder and majesty in music.
