Vox Clamantis comprises musicians with different backgrounds – singers, composers, instrumentalists and conductors – who share a common interest in the Gregorian chant, early polyphony and contemporary music. Many Estonian composers – among them Arvo Pärt, Helena Tulve and Erkki-Sven Tüür – have written for Vox Clamantis.
