About Dodecantus

Formed in 2004, Dodecantus is a small chamber choir performing in and around Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. The name 'Dodecantus' is derived from two languages - 'dodeka' (Greek for 'twelve') and 'cantus' (Latin for 'singing'). There are not always twelve choir members singing but numbers are kept small to ensure the sound created is special and intimate at every performance.

Whilst their primary focus is to perform locally, they have also undertaken a programme of tours and performed at many European venues including Seville Cathedral, L'Abbaye de Fontany and Valetta, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In addition, Dodecantus have two recordings currently available.

Join Us

If you have proven vocal and musical ability and the dedication to learn new repertoire, we are keen to hear from you. Rehearsals are at St Augustines Church, Rodbourne, Swindon, on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in the weeks leading up to a concert. Recruitment is restricted to keep numbers small but all applications are considered. Dodecantus currently has vacancies in the tenor section of the choir, but all singers are welcome to register their interest. Please contact us if you are interested. Applicants are generally invited to join a rehearsal which may then lead to an audition. We also have a small list of reserve singers, so if there is currently no vacancy but you would like to act as a reserve, then this may be a possibility.

Weddings, Events, Occasions

Dodecantus are delighted to be asked to sing at weddings and other events and they listen carefully to any ideas you may have with regard to music you would like at your occasion. If you know exactly what you want, they'll happily accommodate this if they can. They can also give advice on what music might be appropriate.
