Grex Vocalis artist

Grex Vocalis was founded by Carl Høgset in 1971 and soon established itself as one of Norway’s leading chamber choirs. Høgset’s ideal sound was shaped by Continental influences, and the choir was moulded in the cultivation of the Early Music tradition, in which homogeneity, purity, lines, vocal timbre, and focus on textual content and expression are utterly essential. These same qualities are indispensable in the choir’s work with other musical epochs. Besides performances in Norway, Grex Vocalis has toured throughout Europe and has visited Japan and Cuba. The choir has won first prizes in national and international competition, has released ten recordings and contributed to numerous others, and three times has been awarded the Spellemann Prize, the Norwegian Grammy.
