Ars Choralis Coeln is genuinely a local product of Cologne. The debut took place in the »Romanischen Sommer« 2004 in Cologne. Since then the ensemble perform regularly in Cologne‘s twelve romanesque churches, but also throughout Germany, Europe and Asia.
The research and performance of music manuscripts from women's monasteries and music from women in the Middle Ages is the emphasis of the work. From the very beginning the repertoire has focussed on the music of Hildegard von Bingen. But as a Cologne based ensemble they perform regulary the repertoire of the nearly inexhaustible wealth of manuscripts in the Library of the Cathedral of Cologne.
A great number of CDs, many in co-production with the WDR, testify to the creative work of the ensemble: amongst others two CDs with the music of the Beguines, last year a CD of the Ordo Virtutum (Hildegard von Bingen) and this year a CD with the music from a manuscript of dominican nuns from the monastery Paradiese.
Under the direction of Maria Jonas, the ensemble also regularly develops intercultural and interreligious projects: A new important focus that has been added in recent years.
