Editorial Reviews

Founded in 1212 the St. Thomas Choir Leipzig is one of the most famous and prestigious boys' choirs in the world. This documentary accompanies “Die Thomaner”, aged between 9 and 18 years old, over a period of one year. Their unique world, from motets to boarding school and the football pitch, is distinguished by success, pressure to perform, doubt, pride, homesickness, and friendship. The film charts the breadth of the boys' experience from the classroom to traveling on tour to South America. Two tracks from Johann Sebastian Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” performed by the choir for which it was written - St. Thomas Boys Choir - in St. Thomas Church, Leipzig, where the composer worked and is buried. No. 1 Chor: "Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen" No. 39 Arie (Alto): "Erbarme dich"

A good friend suggested this DVD to me. I learned so much from it and listened to the heavenly singing of this old, very old school where boys sing the most moving and sublime music.

For anyone interested in the wonderful Thomanerchor of Leipzig, this 800th Anniversary 2012 movie is a must. Johann Sebastian Bach was their Thomaskantor 1723-1750. Today Georg Christoph Biller, a former Thomaner himself, is Bach's 16th successor, holding that prestigious position since 1990. Bach is the backbone of their repertoire today. Of Thomanerchor, Mozart, a Catholic, said in 1789: "There is none like it in Berlin, Vienna, or Prague!". The English subtitles are very helpful. There are two bonus tracks from St. Matthew Passion. The Blu-ray is a bit pricey, but maybe some of the proceeds go to Thomaskirche. I got their Bachfest 2000 B-Minor Mass DVD for $5 awhile back, so the two average out OK!
