One Response to The Pope’s Brother Conducts

  1. Liam says:

    For those who are not aware: the Regensburg cathedral “sparrows” (the boy’s choir) make the King’s College Choir seem arriviste (Regensburg’s choir is twice as old, over 1,000 years old), and Fr Georg was named their kappellmeister in 1964. Far more eminent than even the fabled David Willcocks in the English-language world.
