Romanesque Night     [Location: St. Mary in the Capitol, Cologne]

Highlights from a four-hour yearly event with cult status. The voices of twin brothers Ratko and Radiša Teofilović from Serbia render folk songs in an ancient church style with spinetingling results. Music researcher and choral conductor Stephan Morent has pieced together Gregorian chant never yet heard in modern times. And Germany's best-known living composer, Wolfgang Rihm, created a piece for voices and instruments sounding both fresh and archaic.
