On 16th of November 2019 The Schoole of Night performed a concert within the conference of the International Jacob Böhme Gesellschaft that took place in the Barockhaus in Görlitz. The programme consisted of songs from the collection Heilige Seelen=Lust (Breslau 1657/1668) by Angelus Silesius and Georg Joseph.
Manfred Stahnke has written a piece for The Schoole of Night. The composition has been commissioned by The Schoole and the International Jakob Böhme Society and it is designed for the acoustic space of the Nikolaikirche (St. Nicolas’ Church) in Görlitz and it is based on the texts of Jakob Böhme. It is written for soprano, trombone, viola, synthesiser and electric guitar.
The project will be produced together with the Evangelische Kulturstiftung Görlitz.
