A proposal: This page should mention that this group was a christian, largely Roman Catholic. It should also mention Count Claus Schenk von Stauffenberg a severely wounded officer and devote Catholic succeeded in planting a bomb (as part of a coup d'etat) that wounded but did not kill Hitler at a military staff meeting. Hitler's reprisal killed thousand of German military officers.

This should be mention because its makes a distinction between the Black Orchestra and the Red Orchestra. The Red Orchestra was a group of anti-Hitler Socialist Army offices.

I believe but I am not certain that the Catholic nature of the group also reflects the Bavarian origin.

Black Orchestra is not a very good translation. A Kapelle is a chapel, and there is musical genre of "chapel music" played by a small number of musicians. It makes for a clever word game in German, but unfortunately it doesn't translate well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:02, 24 December 2013 (UTC)
