The Ensemble Vocapella Limburg was founded in 2007 by young men from the Limburg region in Germany who share their musical roots as former members of the Limburger Domsingknaben (Limburg Cathedral Boys’ Choir). Together with their conductor Tristan Meister, they have committed themselves to the art of men’s choral literature.
The choir has built an excellent reputation and is frequently invited to give concerts at home and abroad. Concert tours have taken the singers to Japan, Brasil, Argentina, Paraguay, Hungary, Belgium, Bulgaria, and all parts of Germany. They have garnered awards at several competitions, including the Budapest Choir Competition (2013), the Hessian Choir Competition in Schlitz (2013), the German Choir Competition in Weimar (2014), and the international Choir Competition in Varna (2016). During the German Choir Competition in Weimar the choir not only won the special award for contemporary music, but also the production of the CD Vom Werden und Vergehen (Songs of Life and Death) by Rondeau Production in recognition of their outstanding performance. In 2016 and 2017 the ensemble presented the world‘s first recording of the complete works for a cappella male choir by Max Reger on two CDs. The choir’s first CD titled In der Ferne (In the Distance) was released in 2012.
The choir’s repertoire spans all eras of choral music for men’s voices, including music of Renaissance as well as contemporary pieces, which are often written specifically for the choir by renowned composers.
