Torgau – in the city church


The city church of Torgau, built in 1119 is a Hall church (since it is built in late gothic style it may have taken a long time to built it). I am making this post not because of eventually ongoing rumors that Catherine Zeta-Jones thinks about entering a convent (which I definitely won’t believe unless there is more evidence..:)) but rather in order to have an opportunity to mention that Gerhard Richter’s new windows in the dome of cologne are now on display. But of course the church’s architecture is noteworthy in itself:





There is currently an exhibition in the church about the life of Michael Praetorius – a wellknown composer (especially known for his clerical songs). He is also known for introducing the Venetian polychoral style in Germany.
