We are constantly expanding our repertoire in carus music, the choir app. This month there is one new work: D. Scarlatti's Stabat Mater.

With carus music, the choir app, you can follow the music while listening to a top-class recording on your smartphone or tablet, and easily practice your own choral part with the help of a coach.

Ein feste Burg


J. S. Bach: Ein feste Burg

With its highly complex and artful opening chorus, the cantata Ein feste Burg is one of the highlights among Bach's cantatas. With the Kammerchor Stuttgart under Frieder Bernius and the soloists Sarah Wegener, David Allsopp, Thomas Hobbs and Peter Harvey, this masterpiece finds a more than adequate recording here.
