The choir Capella St. Crucis was founded in 1977 by Prof. Ulrich Bremsteller as a choir for music students and experienced amateur choristers. Under the musical direction of Manuel Doormann, Prof. Anne Kohler and - since 2011 - Florian Lohmann, the choir has developed in repertoire and excellence. Furthermore, the choir is supported by the voice teacher Nils Ole Peters. Numerous prizes and successes at the Lower Saxony Choral Competition (2005, 2009, 2017) are evidence of the choirs high standard. In 2018 the Capella was awarded 3rd prize in the 10th German National Choir Competition in Freiburg.
Every year the choir presents several sacred and secular concert programs in Hanover and Northern Germany. Its size also allows for the performance of major oratorios and challenging a-capella works from the Renaissance to contemporary, including commissioned pieces and world premiers, with a marked preference for Bachs choral music. Moreover, Capella St. Crucis is always searching for new artistic challenges such as unusual concert modes as well as scenic productions or broadcasting co-operations. The choir has performed around the globe, including concert appearances in several European countries and Argentina. In 2019 the choir is on concert tour to Australia.
Coriole are excited to be hosting this one-off concert, tickets are extremely limited.
The sacred choral music in the A-cappella program of Capella St. Crucis for Passiontide, reflects the motto 'Media Vita‘ (lat. = in the midst of our lives) in confronting the interwoven manifestation of life & death and the struggle between them. It also expresses a deep trust in God through the music as in a musical journey through time from the Baroque, via Romantic to Contemporary era. Composers such as J.S.Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Batholdy, Max Reger and James MacMillan will be heard.
