The term Collegium Musicum typically signifies a small ensemble with a focus on early music. Thus, the repertoire comes from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque. This is a massive repertoire, of course, including such major genres as: liturgical and secular monophony; the madrigals of England and Italy; the “part-songs” of various European countries; the chanson (and its numerous offshoots); the polyphonic Mass; early and late motets; and various idioms of solo song.
In addition, we have in the past explored some rare musics from later eras and with long historical roots: folk repertoire, shape-note singing and other hymnody.
