Dear Friends, after a foray into the exhilarating world of oratorio with Verdi’s Requiem and Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, we are very pleased to be able to perform our beloved Maria program not far from Bremen.
Despite the inauspicious date we intend to appear, well rested, with clear heads and voices, to create an atmosphere for contemplation and reflection after the troubles and stresses of the run up to the Christmas festivities, to think over our new year resolutions and enjoy the uplifting music.
“Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.” Alphonse de Lamartine
With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year,
Wiltrud, Annette, Bernhard, Allan
