The Choir

The “Munich English Choir” are semi-professional singers who have a passion for english choral music. The choir was founded in 2010 by the English Organist and Choirmaster Stephen Norton and now has over 36 members.

The speciality of the choir is singing the English “Advent Carol Service” on the evening before the 1st Advent in the Arch-Abbey of St. Ottilien. The Christmas story is told from the foretelling of the prophets in the Old Testament and then the Annunciation to Our Lady in the New Testament up to the birth of Our Lord. Following each Lesson a Carol is sung by the choir, based on the text of the Lesson or a different advent text. The congregation then responds with a congregational carol, which is a hymn based on an Advent or Christmas text. Please click here for more information regarding the Advent Carol Service.
