The Rostock Motet Choir[1] (German: Rostocker Motettenchor) was founded in 1964 by Hartwig Eschenburg and gave concerts from the early days in famous churches and concert halls in East Germany. The Rostock Motet Choir is part of the church choir (St. Johannis-Kantorei) at St. John's Church in Rostock. The choir has performed inter alia at the Kreuzkirche, Dresden, St. Thomas' Church and the Neues Gewandhaus in Leipzig, as well as the Berlin Concert Hall. Many well-known soloists, such as Peter Schreier and Ludwig Güttler, have worked with the Rostock Motet Choir.
