Versus (lat.) = towards, turn, trench, row, line, verse

The chamber choir Ensemble Versus specialises in the sacred music of the Renaissance and Early Baroque era, as well as the twentieth-century and contemporary works. Its performances – essentially musical contemplations rather than concerts – always strive for unusual and thematically concise dramaturgy. Combining efficiently “the old“ with “the new“ the choir’s repertoire covers all the periods of the liturgical year.

Given our specialisation we tend to perform in temples rather than on concert stages. We will be happy to sing in any church, be it a concert performance or a musical accompaniment of the church service. It is our objective to supply the liturgy with decent and appropriate music (decens et idonea musica), which only painfully maintains its position in the church these days.
