Five medlz and one ave maria

Five medlz and one ave maria

It was probably a somewhat different pre-christmas concert that took place on saturday late afternoon in the protestant town church in kitzingen, but an absolutely atmospheric one.

Apart from the fact that the funf medlz as a female a cappella combo are an unusual constellation in this genre, which tends to be dominated by men. "O du frohliche" and "leise rieselt der schnee" once in arrangements only fur voice to hear, one experiences not every day.

And so the medlz were also happy about a fully occupied church and an appreciative audience, which listened attentively to the singing of the professional singers.

The medlz are not unknown in kitzingen. In 2008, they visited the city for the first time to perform together with the local heroes of soundchexx on the market square in kitzingen. Since then, the group has a friendship with the city on the main, which was cultivated again with this pre-christmas concert and which has certainly brought the ladies many new fans.

The town church was bathed in a cosy light – perfect sound and atmospheric lighting did their part to ensure that the songs in the one-and-a-half-hour program could really come into their own. The fact that the five women – all of them just around 30 – in short black dresses and high boots made a very attractive picture, certainly pleased many a manner eye.

But first and foremost, it was good news for the ears. Whether discreet balladesques like "maria durch ein dornwald ging" or an "adeste fideles" presented in several languages or excursions into the christmas song cultures of other continents with all kinds of rhythm – the bandwidth of the medlz program was broad. Sabine explained right at the beginning that there was also a bass mingling between the bell-like voices: the group works with an octaver, an effect device that adds one or more octaves above or below the sound. And also other "unusual features" for a cappella groups were mixed into the performance: one after the other, the singers also took a seat on the cajon, a percussion instrument, or used tuning sticks and tambourine to enhance the pieces.

The vocal acrobatics in an interpretation of "ave maria" after bach/gounod or the spanish "hijo de la luna" seemed almost artistic. Sensitivity in interpretation as well as skillful finesse delighted the kitzingen audience, which gave a long standing ovation. Maybe not for the last time: the medlz want to come back in any case.
