Lauda Musicam has roots as the early music ensemble-in-residence at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church. After becoming defunct for a number of years, the group was reorganized by mostly members of the former Emory Early Music Ensemble. Performing for church services throughout the year, the ensemble also performs two concerts yearly.
Membership is open to amateur and pre-professional musicians with good music reading skills and at least a rudimentary knowledge of historical music performance practice. Instruments commonly used in the ensemble are replicas of instruments in use during the renaissance period (ca. 1400–1600): recorder, viol, sackbut, cornetto, crumhorn, cornamuse, lute, keyless flute, harpsichord, small harp, percussion.
