Lutherkantorei Frankfurt

The Lutherkantorei –Lutheran Church Choir – exists since 1894, almost as long as the parish itself, which was founded one year previously in Frankfurt’s Nordend. Over the years the parish choir has developed into a versatile and competent ensemble. The choir arranges two to three major concerts annually, usually together with an orchestra and a soloist. It also sings regularly in church services on Sundays and public holidays. The repertoire covers a wide range of religious vocal music, from works of the Renaissance period to compositions in various styles from the 20. century.

Major works performed in recent years include: C. Ph. E. Bach: Magnificat. J. S. Bach: Magnificat; Weihnachtsoratorium I - VI. A. Dvorak: Messe D-Dur. R. Grössler: Gospelmesse "Mass of Joy". G. F. Händel: Messias. R. Keiser: Markuspassion. W. A. Mozart: Vesperae de Dominica. C. Saint-Saëns: Oratorio de Noël. H. Schütz: Passionen. G. Ph. Telemann: Lukaspassion, Oratorio "Die Schöpfung": Joseph Haydn.

The Lutherkantorei Frankfurt rehearses on Thursdays from 20.00 to 22.00h in the Gemeindezentrum, Lutherkirche, Martin-Luther-Platz 1, 60316 Frankfurt. Direction: Elke Katscher-Reulein. Singing audition not necessary; knowledge of music a benefit but not a must.

Elke Katscher-Reulein, born in 1964, studied church music at the Evangelical Church Music College in Frankfurt and at the Frankfurt Music College (choir direction: W. Schaefer and U. Gronostay). She supplemented her studies with courses under E. Ericson, H. Rilling and K. Johanssen. In 1989 she passed the A Examination for church music and in the same year started as church musician with the Luther Parish in Frankfurt Nordend.
