HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Archiv) Johann Sebastian Bach – Three Motets (Regensburger Domspatzen)

Many thanks to our friend Lemarquis for the sparrows
The Regensburger Domspatzen (Regensburg Cathedral Choir) is the official choir for the liturgical music at St Peter’s Cathedral in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany. The choir consists of boys and young men only. The Domspatzen, literally “Cathedral Sparrows”, trace their origins back to the year 975 when bishop Wolfgang of Regensburg founded a cathedral school that – among other things – instructed boys to sing in the liturgy. The choir has seen various ups and downs during its more than 1,000-year history. In the 20th century, however, the Domspatzen became world-famous, especially through the achievement of the two directors who were to shape them over the course of 70 years: Theobald Schrems and Georg Ratzinger (brother of Pope Benedict XVI).

  1. Reminds me of my second year in music theory class; we had a whole book of Bach chorales to which we had to listen so as to see his chord structures and the progression from chord to chord, and the development of the melody line, and the complex contrapuntal technique he used in each vocal line, et al.
    Quite a lesson into the mind of the composer and his music.
    This recording is masterfully sung.
