Church music is an important part of the life of our parish. St. Mary’s church is a challenge for both worship and musical events.
The “Marienkantorei”, the music ministry of the church, currently comprises about 170 participants in eight groups with members of all ages. It is directed by Karl-Bernhardin Kropf. The music schedule (concerts, liturgical contributions) can be opened here>.
There are two organs in St. Mary’s. The Great Organ houses 5,700 pipes of 83 stops within a baroque case, playable on four manuals and pedals (Download the specification as PDF>). The organ can be visited within the Noon Prayers.
