The Canticum Novum Music Association is an independent, non-profit association. We desire to promote Christ-honoring choral singing in support of our Iowa Association of Regular Baptist Churches. Canticum Novum consists of singers and instrumentalists who are active members of IARBC churches, and other churches of like faith and practice. The name "Canticum Novum" is Latin for "new song," and is in reference to Psalm 96:1, shown below.

O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing to the LORD, all the earth.
                                                                              Psalm 96:1
