A cappella group Cantus explores the mystery of our greatest gift, love. Including music by Francis Poulenc, Edvard Grieg, Ludwig van Beethoven, Bobby McFerrin and Ysaye Barnwell, The Four Loves looks at this unquantifiable emotion from all sides. Hailed as " the premier Men's vocal ensemble in the United States" (Fanfare), Cantus is acknowledged around the world for their programmatic versatility, artistic excellence, and charismatic personality.
"No note was out of place, and the sound, unencumbered by instrumental accompaniment . . . was absolutely gorgeous . . ."
