Concert on Location: St. Lorenz in Nuremberg

The introduction of the Reformation in Nuremberg in the year 1525 served to silence the songs of the Geese Book. Only a small selection of plain chants was retained in the Lutheran liturgy. In September 2002, for the first time in 500 years, the sounds of the church's pre-Reformation liturgy once again filled the vast spaces of this late medieval edifice.


The Schola Hungarica gathered in front of the Deocarus Altar to perform chants from the Mass formula for the feast of Saint Deocarus, one of the two patron saints of the city of Nuremberg.


The twelve children give the performances of the Schola Hungarica their unique timbre.
