Spiritual Music on Sundays

The heart of church music is the proclamation of the glory of God. This function is experienced in a special way in spiritual music on Sundays. Taking place every other Sunday, the character of Sundays is reflected in each instance by the music and a motto. In addition there are readings, thoughts on the gospels, prayer requests and requests for blessings.

Guest ensembles, vocal and instrumental soloists and the choir of the Frauenkirche perform spiritual pieces which correspond to the baroque design of the Frauenkirche – High Baroque. We would like to offer you a varied mixture of solo cantatas, religious concerts, cantatas, and choir and instrumental music from different periods.

You are welcome to an hour of music and thoughts on Sunday afternoons.
