About

The St Thomas Boys Choir, whose history dates back to the year 1212, is the oldest cultural establishment in the city of Leipzig. Outliving all political, municipal, religious, and educational controversy for 800 years, musica sacra has shaped the choir's past. Through the influence of the many St Thomas Cantors, including the most famous – Johann Sebastian Bach (Thomas Cantor 1723-1750) – the city of Leipzig and the St Thomas Church became the centre of Protestant church music. The St Thomas Church is home to the Boys Choir. A choir rich in tradition, they are committed to continuing this musical legacy. This release contains the award-winning two-hour documentary “Die Thomaner: A Year in the Life of the St. Thomas Boys Choir Leipzig” by Paul Smaczny and Günter Atteln, as well as the breathtaking recordings of two of Johann Sebastian Bach’s major choral works: the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor.
