Consisting of some 30 singers, the chamber choir was founded in 1996, making it a still very new ensemble. It has been led by Matthias Jung since 1998. The choir is dedicated to singing vocal music from various eras and genres, from the 16th century to the present. It particularly enjoys performing rarer sounding piece.
Its skill and inspiring repertoire have seen the dresdner motettenchor establish itself on the concert scene both within Dresden and beyond. It has won several prizes in national and international competitions, performed at the Dresdner Musikfestspiele (Dresden Music Festival), the
Internationale Heinrich-Schütz-Tage festival, and Leipzig’s Bachfest, and also teamed up with the Sächsisches Vocalensemble, the Neue Elbland Philharmonie, and the Virtuosi Saxoniae led by Ludwig Güttler. In 2003, the choir released a CD featuring premiere recording of the complete series of Advent and Christmas song arrangements by Günter Raphael.
