The Dresden Kreuzchor
can look back on a great musical tradition, not just as a result of its long history – stretching back an incredible 800 years. The boys' choir is one of the world's foremost ensembles of its kind. The list of former “Crucians” across the centuries reads like a Who's Who of classical music. Great singers like Theo Adam, Peter Schreier and René Pape, conductors like Hartmut Haenchen and Hansjörg Albrecht, composers like Carl Heinrich and Johann Gottlieb Graun, Torsten Rasch and Udo Zimmermann – to mention just a few – were all boy choristers at the Kreuzkirche. The education offered at the Kreuzschule and in the choir unites Lutheran liturgical service in the Kreuzkirche alongside many opportunities for performances in Dresden, throughout Germany and at international venues on many tours. There are sound recordings of the Kreuzchor going back to 1937, when the choir's development was significantly influenced by its long-time director, the composer Rudolf Mauersberger. The present choir director, Roderich Kreile, continues to further the tradition and the discography has been expanded by many more recordings, ranging from Bach's Christmas Oratorio through to folk songs, sacred music and Brahms's Requiem. The repertoire incorporates music from the 16th century through to the present day, from Heinrich Schütz through to Mikis Theodorakis. The ensemble enjoys the status of a cultural ambassador for the city of Dresden and Germany and is seen in many quarters as a role model and standard bearer for musical education.
