Chanticleer – The Siren’s Call
Named for the “clear-singing” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, this Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble ” fascinates and enthralls for much the same reason a fine chocolate or a Rolls Royce does – through luxurious perfection.” -Los Angeles Times
Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Chanticleer, the only full-time classical vocal ensemble in the United States, has developed a remarkable reputation for its vivid interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and from gospel to venturesome new music. With its seamless blend of twelve male voices, ranging from exquisitely pure countertenor to rich bass, the San Francisco-based group has earned international renown as “an orchestra of voices.”
