The basic repertoire of the choir consists of masterpieces of Finnish composers like Sibelius, Madetoja, Hannikainen, Fougstedt, Kuula and Palmgren and Northen composers like Edvard Grieg, Peter-Erasmus Lange-Muller and Wilhelm Peterson-Berger. The choir also sings the music of contemporary Finnish composers like Linkola, Kostiainen, Kuusisto, Holma and Komulainen. One part of the repertoire consists of old and new sacred music, which the choir sings especially at Christmastime. The Chamber Choir VOKaali has made a CD-record of Christmas music called "Ken kuullut on laulua".
