Mixed adult choir
The Basilica Choir, together with the Basilica Orchestra, maintains the classical repertoire for the musical support of sermons during the pilgrimage and the church year and therefor represents the continuity of a tradition that has existed in Kevelaer since the 19th century.
Main part of the repertoire are over one dozen masses including pieces by Mozart and Haydn but also more obscure composers like Antonio Caldara, Robert Führer, Ignaz Reimann or Karl Pembaur.
The choir also holds a broad repertoire of motets for respective liturgic occasions.
The Basilica Choir also often represents the musical side of the Kevelaer pilgrimage on choir excursions and performances in surrounding dioceses.
