Convivium is proud to be a corporation run by its singers, who serve on the Board of Directors, manage the group’s business affairs, design its programs and publicity materials, and seek out opportunities to perform Renaissance polyphony for new audiences, Convivium Musicum has recently released a new CD: Orlandus Lassus: Prince of Music.
