Vox Nidrosiensis (Vocal Ensemble)

Founded: 2014 - Trondheim, Norway

Founded in 2014, the vocal ensemble Vox Nidrosiensis initially developed as an offshoot of Trondheim Barokk and was made up of singers who had worked regularly with the orchestra for several years; it is now an independent group in its own right. Its name combines two essential elements, the human voice and Nidaros (from which the Latin adjective ‘nidrosiensis’ is derived), the medieval name for the city of Trondheim, which was the principal centre of the Roman Catholic Church in northern Europe and one of the leading places of pilgrimage, comparable in importance to Santiago de Compostela. Composed of solo singers and always working on the principle of one voice per part, Vox Nidrosiensis particularly explores the immense virtuoso repertory stretching from the late Renaissance to the apogee of the Baroque era.
