A German Mass


Sacred Works by Schubert, Cornelius, Distler, Mauersberger, Saint-Saens

Ensemble Nobiles has already earned itself a place in the a cappella pantheon. The five former choristers of the famed St. Thomas Church choir in Leipzig present a recording of Franz Schubert’s German Mass and skillfully round off the disc with contemporary motet settings. The young ensemble not only performs settings by church musicians such as Hugo Distler and Manfred Schlenker, but also feature the works of several St. Thomas cantors. The motet Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich (Grant us your gracious peace) by the current Leipzig Thomaskantor Georg Christoph Biller brings this CD of sacred vocal works full circle – from Schubert all the way to the music of our times.
