 1st verse from:


Matthias Claudius, 1779, 
free translation from German,
from: Musen Almanach, published by: Joh. Heinr. Voß

Der The moon has risen
The golden stars are shining
     In the sky bright and clear:
The forest stands black and silent,
And from the meadows rises
     The white mist rises wonderfully.

 1. Strophe aus:


Matthias Claudius, 1779,
aus: Musen Almanach, Herausgeber: Joh. Heinr. Voß

Der Mond ist aufgegangen
Die goldnen Sternlein prangen
Am Himmel hell und klar:
Der Wald steht schwarz und schweiget,
Und aus den Wiesen steiget
Der weiße Nebel wunderbar.

Thaddäus Dorsch

is a classical contemporary composer, born 1966 in Munich, Germany. His style moves in between post-minimalism, ancient church music and the current new Nordic style. He is pursuing the grand vision of inspiring people to experience new classical music and thus making the world a better place to live. The focus of his work is sacred music with a deep message, which is reflected in numerous works for choirs and vocal ensembles. Yet there are also works for chamber music, orchestra, theatre and film. 
Thaddäus Dorsch gained broad musical experience as a violin and viola player, baritone and conductor. Through collaboration with composers and conductors Karl Zepnik (Germany), Martin Ellerby (GB), Ferrer Ferran (Spain) and Stephen Melillo (USA), he further developed his compositional work. 
Thaddäus Dorsch has twice been awarded the Cultural Promotion Prize of the City of Landsberg am Lech. He has been commissioned with several choral works for the German Youth Chamber Choir, for the German Choir Festival and for various choir competitions.

Thaddäus Dorsch, Composer

Thank You...

… for being a pioneer artist and for supporting me to excite and inspire people. 
If we all artists come together and show the people that we are one world through our works, then we will achieve peace on earth.
Thank You for being part of this movement.
