cantus et musica freiburg

cantus et musica freiburg was founded in 2006 by Raimund Hug. The ensemble consists of a mixed choir and a group of instrumentalists who dedicate themselves to presenting ambitious and demanding vocal projects. Alongside well-known repertoire, they are constantly on the lookout for works of value by unknown local masters. Among their recordings are motets by sixteenth-century masters who studied at the University of Freiburg, and eighteenth-century sacred music from the Augustinian Monastery in Herzogenburg (Lower Austria, SRL4 – 07003) and sixteenth and seventeenth-century cathedral music from Constance (SRL4 – 09062).

In 1963 he began studying organ, church music and conducting with Hans Gillesberger, Hans Haselböck and Hans Swarowsky in Vienna. He graduated with Distinction in 1967, obtaining degrees in Church Music and Organ. Academic work in musicology then followed (Innsbruck, Basel andMainz), resulting in a Ph. D. degree. From 1969 – 2003 he was the director of church music at the Freiburg Cathedral. In 1970, he founded the Cathedral Singing School, where many children received their musical education.
