Notes & Reviews:

With this disc, the St Thomas's Boys Choir remembers Leipzig's University Church of St Paul, which was destroyed in 1968 by the combined decision of the Leipzig city council and the University senate. Built in the 13th century, the church had survived WWI and WWI unscathed. Together with the Gewandhaus Orchestra and a number of soloists, St Thomas's Boys Choir commemorates the great historical and cultural value of the University Church of St Paul.
