Notes & Reviews:

Hugo Distler was born on 24 June 1908 in Nuremberg and brought up by his grandparents in the old book printing town. In his baptismal church St. Lawrence, the High Gothic principal church of the old town of Nuremberg south of the river Pegnitz, Leonhard Lechner Athesinus (1553 - 1606), Distler's model as a composer, had also worked during his lifetime. Up to the present time, the famous Engelsgru [Angelic S alutation] b y V eit Stoss (1447 - 1533) is to be found in this church - a work of art created in 1517/18, the year of the Reformation - which both composers, Leonhard Lechner und Hugo Distler, had seen there. Christian Steyer is an all-rounder. He is an actor, musician and speaker. He also writes, conducts several choirs and teaches. Christine Rothe was born in Annaberg-Buchholz/Erzgebirge in 1991. After several years of recorder lessons, she began learning the fl ute at the municipal music school at the age of ten. The Leipzig chamber choir Kammerchor Josquin des Prz has been acclaimed by press and public alike for its exceptional musical sensitivity and sense of style. The ensemble has enthused audiences through its blended, powerful and wellbalanced choral sound, as well as the excellent quality of the individual voices.
