Falcon Choirs second Germany Tour performance on Easter Monday in Steingaden

The Falcon Choirs are going to perform at the lovely Wieskirche in Steingaden, next to the castle Neuschwanstein on Easter Monday at 2:00 PM.

Something out of the ordinary, from many points of view, took place here. Human tears, an age-old phenomenon, were the spiritual building stones, the precious pearls from which the Wieskirche, a world famous rococo jewel, was created. In the 18th Century the Wieskirche was already known throughout Europe as a place of reverence for the Scourged Saviour, and at the same time a famous gem of baroque architecture.
Even today the church lives from both these wellsprings: its spiritual and artistic richness. Thus, the Wieskirche continues as a pilgrimage church, a place of prayer and worship, and is simultaneously a magical drawing point for millions of visitors. Through their encounter with this joyous Baroque, full of life and hope, they sense a world which moved the writer Peter Dörfler, in the first half of this century, to write: "The Wies is a bit of heaven in this suffering world."
