For three whole years the MDR broadcaster accompanied the tradition-steeped boys'
choir of the Kreuzkirche in its day-to-day affairs. Strictly organised rehearsals contrast
with the day-to-day life of a choirboy and the burden of combining schoolwork and
choral duties seems dispelled by the sheer joy and passion the boys have for singing.
It is fascinating to observe the sense of responsibility the boys, large and small, take in their daily dealings with each other, how they organise their lives, while remaining very much normal boys. Observers joined them when they had to move out of their school and boarding quarters into less comfortable "exile accommodation" during renovation, and were able to share in their relief when it was all over and they were able to return to their traditional home.
Here is the entire documentary series on the Kreuzchor for all those that missed it first
time round: all three episodes in one slipcase!
