In Roman mythology, Canens was the personification of song. She was a nymph from Latium.

The witch Circe turned her husband Picus into a woodpecker because he scorned her love. Canens searched for her husband for six days and then threw herself into the Tiber river. She sang one final song and then died. They had one son, Faunus.
