The Vienna Choir Boys
0 Shouts - 6,381 Scrobbles
The choir is the modern-day descendant of the boy singers of the Viennese Court, dating back to the late Middle Ages. The choir was, for practical purposes, established by a letter written by Maximilian I of Habsburg on 7 July 1498. In the letter the Emperor instructed court officials to employ a singing master, two basses and six boys. A Slovene, Jurij Slatkonja, became the director of the ensemble. The boys were drawn largely from the Netherlands.
