Celebrating over twenty years of music making, the Suspicious Cheese Lords broaden the global repertoire and listenership of choral music by unearthing forgotten works, breathing new life into familiar pieces, and supporting emerging composers. Specializing in early music, this unique brotherhood's concerts, liturgies, recordings, and educational programs provide a scholarly yet accessible interpretation of music of all eras, inspiring fans and future musicians alike.
