Regensburg: Saint Peters Cathedral

Regensburg Cathedral, also known as St. Peter’s Cathedral, is an example of important Gothic architecture within the German state of Bavaria. It is a landmark for the city of Regensburg, Germany, and the seat of the Catholic Diocese of Regensburg.

The “Domspatzen” boys’ choir (engl. Cathedral Sparrows) dates back to the year 975 and is one of the oldest boys’ choirs in the world. To look at the young boys, it’s hard to imagine the professionalism with which they draw their audiences under their spell. You see the love of music in every face. And hear it as well, of course. Nearly every Sunday, at High Mass in the Cathedral of St Peter.
