REPERTOIRE FOR CHOIR

Passiontide and Easter

The traditional version of the St. John Passion has now also been published as a vocal score XL in reader-friendly large print.

FAVORITE WORK

Mendelssohn Bartholdy: The complete sacred music for choir and orchestra

Normally one of the staff presents his or her personal favorite piece here. But for me, and probably for many others too, this choice changes frequently according to my mood. By contrast, for me it is all about a favorite composer: Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy.
