Accentus Chamber Choir was founded in 1991 by the French chorus master Laurence Equilbey. The 32-member Choir is dedicated to interpreting modern and traditional a capella choral music repertoire.
The group has a growing discography which was inaugurated with a 1994 recording of choral works by Francis Poulenc and Ravel, winner of the Prix de l'Académie du Disque Lyrique and the "Must" de Compact. Accentus was also nominated at the 1996 Victoires de la Musique for their recording of songs and ballads by Brahms and Schumann. Their recording of Psalms and Motets by Felix Mendelssohn also won a Choc du Monde de la Musique. Accentus was named Musical Personality of the Year for 1997-1998 by the Syndicat Professionnel de la critique dramatique et musicale. Accentus was thrilled to make its USA debut with an 11 city tour in November 2000.
