National identity in music: This is the theme of the third GENUIN release by the splendid vocal formation Ensemble Nobiles. The program features rugged, beautiful, and truly unique works from Norway, Bohemia, and Finland. The composers Antonín Dvořák, Edvard Grieg, and Jean Sibelius are the fathers of the musical culture of their respective countries, each with his own unmistakable language that suffuses every note of this refined and sophisticated production. For the first time, the five singers from Leipzig are accompanied by two world-class partners on the piano in a number of selections on the CD. Rare pleasures sung to vocal perfection – a true discovery!

Be welcome: CD
Just as boys' voices suffuse the streets of a city, still asleep, on a crystal-clear December morning – that's how the Ensemble Nobiles sings to us on its second GENUIN CD. A cappella music is on the programme, in a broad curve extending from the quiet beginning of the church year on the first Sunday of Advent and the jubilation of Christmas to the prophetic Feast of the Epiphany. The members of the quintet originally sang in the Choir of St. Thomas's and are currently winning one prize after the other. The ensemble's flawlessly pure intonation is as convincing as its musical culture and choice of pieces. Here is an alternative for the Christmas season for all those who are looking for fresh repertoire, both old and new, from the Renaissance to the present day – utterly harmonious!

A German Mass: CD
Sacred Works by Schubert, Cornelius, Distler, Mauersberger, Saint- Saëns
Ensemble Nobiles has already earned itself a place in the a cappella pantheon. The five former choristers of the famed St. Thomas Church choir in Leipzig present a recording of Franz Schubert’s German Mass and skillfully round off the disc with contemporary motet settings. The young ensemble not only performs settings by church musicians such as Hugo Distler and Manfred Schlenker, but also feature the works of several St. Thomas cantors. The motet Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich (Grant us your gracious peace) by the current Leipzig Thomaskantor Georg Christoph Biller brings this CD of sacred vocal works full circle – from Schubert all the way to the music of our times.
