Early Music Today

'...highly impressive and imaginative synthesis of old and new.'

'...this is a rich feast, yes, but one that always leaves you wanting more.'
International Record Review

Canty, Scotland's only professional Medieval music group, was formed by Rebecca Tavener in 1998, the 900th anniversary of the birth of Hildegard of Bingen. It comprises the regular female singers with Cappella Nova, Scotland's leading early music vocal ensemble.

Canty's individual and appealing sound has led to appearances in many distinguished festivals and venues at home and abroad, including the Edinburgh International Harp Festival and the International Celtic Congress (Bonn).

Through their acclaimed performances and recordings they have sought to re-address the balance in the early music revival that has largely overlooked works for female choir.
