Information about the recording
|CD:||Schwesterhochfuenf Geistliche Vokalmusik a Cappella – CCD 331 (Cavalli records)|
Schwesterhochfuenf really is a vocal ensemble made up of five sisters! For years it has been a matter of course to sing together at family get-togethers. The idea of going public with their skills came up only in 2004. With their first concert under the new name Schwesterhochfuenf, the five women chalked up an immediate success. Fré Thissen pointed me to this Stabat Mater, (unknown to me!). Thanks a lot!
