Notes and Editorial Reviews

Founded in 1998 with members from the world-famous Gächinger Kantorei, Stuttgart's celebrated men's choir "Die Meistersinger" have devoted themselves to rescuing the rich repository of 19th century works for male voices from obscurity.

The "Männerchor" has a distinguished history throughout the Germanic lands, often serving the community with multiple functions such as a social club, political forum or an ad hoc auxiliary to professional guilds.

In keeping with the spirit of the season, "Die Meistersinger" return to offer their perfect blend of voices and rich, golden-hued sound in a program of Christmas favorites.
