During the Sunday Church Service on the third Advent, we will perform Händels aria “Ombra Mai Fu” from the opera Xerxers, sung by the sopranist Anna Gütter. Another highlight will be our premiere of the sophisticated bass aria “Großer Herr, o starker König” by J.S. Bach from his famous Christmas Oratorio. The well-known Bariton singer Roman Trekel will support us. Further, we will play an experimental space-sound-collage based on a concept by Sven Ratzel. It is resting upon  the chorale “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland” and its antecessor “Veni redemptor gentium” by Saint Ambrose.

We would be happy to have you among our audience. It will be a public evening church service on the third Advent, 16th December, starting at 6 PM.
