Founded: Schlägl, Austria

Cantoria Plagensis is the large oratorio choir, recruited by the Stiftskapellmeister der Abtei Schlägl for performances from his work with several ensembles. The name derives from the Latin word for Synoym Schlägl = Plaga and the action of the choir, at the the Praemonstratenserabtei Schlägl in northern Austria, near the Czech border.
