Convivium Musicum has been praised by the Boston Globe for "the almost dancing lift given to the rhythms, both musical and verbal." Convivium's adventurous programming ranges from Josquin and Mouton to Sweelinck and Le Jeune, from Peñalosa to Victoria, from the Song of Songs to Dido's lament, and from Europe to New Spain, including masterworks by Byrd, Guerrero, Praetorius, and many other lesser-known composers.

Over the past fifteen years our programs have ranged from the earliest polyphony to the 1991 world premiere of Richard St. Clair’s Missa Syllabica. We have brought this music to concert series, benefits and special events such as First Night Boston and the Boston Early Music Festival.

Convivium is proud to be a corporation run by its singers, who serve on the Board of Directors, manage the group's business affairs, design its programs and publicity materials, and seek out opportunities to perform Renaissance polyphony for new audiences.
