A capacity crowd of 400 people wore their parkas throughout the performances (churches aren't so warm in the winter) and were as attentive and enthusiastic as you could imagine in the St. Anna Kirche Somborn acoustic, which was perfect for the Washing of the Water program. We were presented by the local male chorus, Mannerchor 1891 Somborn e.V., whose members had heard us in nearby Nidda the summer before last. At a post-concert reception they sang for us. Members of a women's chorus were there also. All of this reminds us that the approval of audiences all over Germany in the early days was instrumental for launching our career in Europe.
