History & Mission:

The Lutherania Choir has been singing Bach pieces almost from its foundation as the Bach oeuvre should not be excluded from any Lutheran choir’s repertoire.
Thanks to Aladár Zalánfy and Jenő Weltler cantata performances have become regular but concert-like (cantatas being performed mid other pieces).
The idea of singing cantatas within the liturgical frame of the mass (as they were originally sung) came from dr. Salamon Kamp. The year 1999-2000 marks the beginning of this type of masses in the church at Deák tér.
They perform these pieces in two parts, one before and the other after the predication at the 11 o'clock mass.
They always sing in the language these cantatas were originally written in, German, and the audience can follow the words from the distributed Hungarian text.
The orchestra of these occasions is the Lutheránia zenekar, usually a string quartet with an additional double bass plus some winds (as required by the cantata), such as flutes, oboes, trumpets.
The orchestra is organized by the leader of the orchestra. In the first years it was Zoltán Martincsek (until mid 2004) followed by Andrea Fenyvesi both members of the community.
Solos are usually sung by Mária Zádori (soprano), Judit Németh (alto), Péter Marosvári (tenor), Zoltán Megyesi (tenor), Holló Csaba (bass), László Jekl (bass).
The cantatas are always performed on the Sunday of the year for which they were composed by Bach. The repertoire grows each year. In this way we learn only a few new cantatas and choose the rest from the ones we already know.”
