Peter Brice, Vox Cantium’s Director of Music

Peter, a choral exhibitioner from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, started a choir
in 1995 for a Christmas concert in aid of the Weald of Kent Hospice at Leeds Church, near
Maidstone. This evolved into a very popular annual Christmas Concert, now in its 27th year,
which has raised over £90,000 for the Hospice.

Vox Cantium

"Vox Cantium" means the "voice of Cantium", referring to Celtic people who lived
in Cantium, the area we now call Kent. Today Vox Cantium consists of 20 voices
singing music from the early Renaissance period (typically Allegri, Byrd, Tallis, de Lassus,
Victoria, Gibbons) through later composers (Purcell, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov)
to the present day (Esenvalds, Tavener, Hawes).

Julius Caesar remarked:
Of all the Britons, the inhabitants of Cantium, an entirely maritime district,
are by far the most civilised, differing but little from the Gallic manner of life.
