A musical highlight of European and American choir music culture: With “Light Eternal” Morten Lauridsen, Nicol Matt, and the Chamber Choir of Europe invite you to a very special experience. Work together with Morten Lauridsen - a master of unique and soulful soundscapes - on his impressive pieces. 

 

The choir, with singers from Europe and around the world (members from 15 nations), embodies the European thought. The repertoire of the choir is as diverse as the European culture. It significantly contributes to the development of cultural dialogue and the mutual understanding of the culture and history of the European people. 

 

As a professional ensemble, it guarantees the highest quality and is reputable for its empathetic and passionate choir concerts. Nature, light, and lyrics are three of the many characteristics that shape this special musical encounter.

Mantra meets Classic - "Shanmuga Kavacham"

An Indian prayer meets classical European choral music

Chamber Choir of Europe

Tenor: Malcom Cooper (USA)

Tenor: Sooraj Santhosh (India)

Tenor: Anand Madhavan (India)

Soprano: Anne Reich (Germany)

Alto: Shalini Singh (India)

Conductor: Nicol Matt (Germany)

Mantras have healing powers in the Hindu faith, using vocal performance causing human body to vibrate which cleanses the mind, body and soul. "Shanmuga Kavacham" must be regarded as intercession for protection against all dangers to the Lord Murugan, the reincarnated form of the Supreme God Shiva which embodies Hinduism.

Another important feature of this project is clearly in the Indian-German cooperation which will contribute on the basis of music to promote international understanding. The singers and soloists come from all over Europe, India and the USA.

The audience will be led by a narrator throughout this sonorous performance. The concert will be recorded and broadcast on Indian television. More information about "Mantra meets Classic" can be found on the homepage:
