If you have been a choir or choir director at a Marien church for over 30 years, it is difficult for you as an evangelical Christian to evade the subject of Maria. Although the Protestants are assumed to have a rather cool relationship with the mother of Jesus, in such a church one literally stumbles across texts, representations and references to a piety from Mary - a piety that Mary does not necessarily make an advocate for God, but she is a role model for faith Especially when, after a strenuous day of rehearsals in a 12th century cathedral in medieval melodies of young voices, the old words from the New Testament sound: "My soul exalts the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior", one thinks As a Lutheran - MAGNIFICAT! Magnificat settings therefore form the framework for the new, fourth album of the youth choir of the cathedral in Wurzen. Of course, one cannot deal with Maria musically without singing about her son Jesus, to tell the whole story, so to speak. So does the youth choir on this release (Hairston - "Amen"). There is also the example speech of the wandering preacher such as "I am a right vine" (Schütz), which encourages clinging to God, the question of right prayer, which Jesus answers with the "Our Father" (Wermann), the longing for God Closeness and presence in "Kyrie and Gloria" by Rheinberger or in Mendelssohn's "I lift my eyes to the mountains". The Kingdom of God plays a central role in Jesus' sermon, which can already be felt here in this world and endures transience. Jesus himself lived in this hope of inseparable communion with God and the spirituals also sing about it in the images of their time.
