The Denison Chamber Singers is the University's vocal ensemble devoted to the study and performance of chamber music from all artistic periods but specializing in Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque literature: motets, madrigals, chanson, villiancicos, masses, and carols. "Early music," as this literature is often described, and its performance has taken the U.S. by storm in the last two decades. Denison University, in response to the incredible interest and popularity in early music at both the amateur and professional level, has established this ensemble to train young musicians in the art of performing and teaching this literature for and to a contemporary public.
