The Cantarem Choir from Hollage, Germany, is visiting Scotland for the first time. They are directed by Maria Hartelt and will take part in both the 9.45am and the 11am Service on Palm Sunday, 29 March.
‘Cantarem’ – derived from a Catalan song, roughly translating into “let us sing” – is the name of the German choir under the direction of Maria Hartelt. They sing at the Catholic Church of St Josef Hollage, near Osnabrück. Within the past ten years, the choir developed from a group of about ten women to a mixed choir (SATB) of about forty motivated singers between the age of 15 and 55 – 28 of them will be singing in St Andrew’s and St George’s West. All are very much looking forward to their musical visit in Edinburgh!
