Figuralchor der Gedächtniskirche Stuttgart

Figuralchor der Gedächtniskirche Stuttgart is a mixed church- and concert choir based in Stuttgart, Germany. It was established in 1957 by Helmuth Rilling.[1] Rilling conducted the choir in several recordings of his project to record the complete choral works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Rilling led the group until the 1970s, when several students took over, first the Americans Henry Gibbons and Gordon Plaine. In 1990 the choir went on a concert tour of the United States, conducted by Johannes Moesus. Peter Bachofer was musical director from 1990, Alexander Burda from 2009.[1]
