interessant ;-) also hast du mitgesungen? Wo findet man dich im Chor?

It's interesting that they're singing in a Catholic church, since according to German Wikipedia, Weikersheim is in a predominantly Protestant part of Baden-Württemberg.

That is nothing unusual it is called ecumenism! The Catholic and Anglican Cathedral choirs in Liverpool UK work together frequently!

@AML2000 there you can find the normal clothes at concerts http://windsbacher-knabenchor.de/ the gowns they put on only sometimes

@Chor Gesang The most important part of knowing the religious divisions when I was in Germany was knowing where to go on Maria Himmelfahrt, or Buss und Bettag to find shops open!. Maria Himmelfahrt -- drive to Frankfurt. Buss und Bettag -- Aschaffenburg or Wurzburg! I don't remember whether Hans Thamm was conducting or not, it might have been the orchestra leader. My best friend from high school was a visiting professor at the University of Erlangen, and we drove down to see the concert. We missed the first cantata because we assumed at the time that it would be in the center of town. Of course, Nuremburg is Catholic, and we had to find the Lutheran church on the edge of town in the suburbs! The Mutanten were serving as ticket sellers and ushers. They wore the same type of short jackets as the Regensburgers back then. The six years I spent in Germany (1969-1972 near Kaiserslautern, and 1975-1978 in Unterfranken) were some of the best years of my adult life in retrospect.

@AML2000 you are really well informed ... I'm impressed. Then you saw the Windsbacher and his founder Hans Thamm conducting them, I think?

@Chor Gesang The Windsbachers were the first German speaking boys choir I saw live almost 40 years ago in a presentation of Bach's Christmas Oratorio in Nuremberg. I was stationed for three years on top of the highest peak of the Spessart Mountains in Unterfranken, So I'm somewhat aware of the complex religious divisions around that part of Germany. Oberfranken is majority protestant, and Mittelfranken, where Windsbach is, is protestant in the small towns and villages and catholic in the big cities, which is why they come from such a small town. That's because the protestant areas used to be ruled by the Hohenzollern Markgrafs of Brandenburg-Ansbach, and Brandenburg-Bayreuth. Weikersheim was ruled by the Protestant Count of Hohenlohe -- thus it's Protestant.
