Who we are...

Capela Gregoriana Psalterium was founded in January 1999 in the university city of Coimbra (Portugal). It  is an exclusively male voice choir and constitutes juridically a charity entity whose fundamental aims are the study, dissemination, and live performance of gregorian chant. Its repertoire is therefore mainly gregorian chant, nevertheless it also includes both early and contemporary polyphony music for male equal voices.

Since March 1999, when the first public performance occurred, the choir has toured through differant parts of Portugal’s mainland as well as the Azores islands giving different types of concerts and also taking part in religious services, such as Mass and Vespers. In October 2000 it went abroad for the first time to take part in a Luso-Brazilian gregorian chant meeting in Brasília - this was a Brazilian Federal Government invitation in the context of the official celebrations of the 500-year anniversary of the discovery of Brazil.

Capela Gregoriana Psalterium is under the conducting of Alberto Medina de Seiça since its foundation.
