New Artistic Director

We are thrilled to introduce Tristan Meister as our new Artistic Director.


Tristan Meister, trained initially with the Limburger Domsingknaben and later under notable figures such as Frieder Bernius, Georg Grün and Klaus Arp at the Mannheim University of Music, has become a prominent figure in the realm of choral music.


Founding Vox Quadrata and directing multiple choirs and ensembles, including the Beethovenchor Ludwigshafen, he has showcased his talents on international platforms. Notable achievements include leading the Ensemble Vocapella Limburg and winning top honours at renowned competitions.


Tristan's influence extends beyond performance, with significant contributions to choral literature, judging competitions, and teaching at prestigious music academies.


We're thrilled to join forces with our new artistic director and are filled with anticipation for an exciting journey ahead.

Premiere Performance of "Christ Our Emmanuel" by John Rutter

In the summer of 2019, we had the great privilege of working and performing together with John Rutter at the European Church Music Festival in Schwäbisch Gmünd.  The SWR radio station broadcast the live concert and with their kind permission we are excited to share the live premiere performance of the beautiful carol “Christ Our Emmanuel” at this festive time of year. Special thanks to John Rutter for his personal introduction.

John Rutter & CCE

John Rutter received the European Church Music Prize in Schwäbisch Gmünd.

We were very proud to have taken part in the Singing Day and Gala Concert with the composer himself,  John Rutter and Nicol Matt.

'The opening piece of the Gala concert was Rutter's "Hymn to the creator of light", a work that Rutter composed in 1992 for the inauguration of a church window and dedicated to his colleague Herbert Howells. A work whose seriousness, but also confidence, conveys the chorus enchantingly. Translucent and filigree in the individual voices, with radiant, and aspiring sopranos. Morten Lauridsen's "O nata lux" is also about light - whose infinity the composer describes in long, rising arcs before slowly disappearing. Whether with Elgar's "Lux aeterna", Brahms's "Ave Maria", the latter edited by David Rain for the choir and premiered this evening, or Rutter's "Cantante Domino" - the choir performs lightly and wonderfully agile under Matt's stirring and dynamic conducting. He warmly communicated to the choir and instrumentalist soloists in Whitacre's "The seal lullaby". The choir was beautifully accompanied by Tabea Stadelmaier (flute), Martin Torwarth (oboe), Magdalena Walesch (harp) and organist Peter Kranefoed.

"The premiere of Rutter's Christ our Emanuel - a composition about the birth of Jesus, a narrative that drove the singers to create an emotional and most touching performance." Gmünder Tagespost 19/07/2019
