Ars Nova specializes in the interpretation of polyphonic choral music of the renaissance and new vocal music. Its performances are marked with precision and with a sound that attracts attention worldwide. The group has recorded nearly 50 CDs featuring leading Danish composers (Nielsen, Nørgaard and Gudmundsen-Holmgreen), American ‘minimalists’ and ‘post minimalists’ (Reich, Lang, Gordon, Cage), European early music (Taverner, Ockeghem, Byrd), a complete recording of all narrative works by Heinrich Schütz and contemporary European composers such as Pärt, Andriessen and Skempton.

Since 2003, Paul Hillier has been the chief conductor and artistic director of Ars Nova. Hillier was founder and artistic director of first The Hilliard Ensemble and later Theatre of Voices. In 2006 he was awarded an OBE for services to choral music. In 2007 he received the Order of the White Star of Estonia, and was awarded a Grammy for Best Choral Recording (”Da Pacem” – Arvo Pärt). He received another Grammy Award for the David Lang CD ’The Little Match Girl Passion’. In 2013 he was awarded the Order of Dannebrog - the Danish knighthood - by Her Majesty, Queen Margaret of Denmark.
