Comments:Very remarkable historical records. Schemellis Gesangbuch is not well known repertoire. And besides, Peter SCHREIER is very famous, german tenor and conductor. It is very good example for contemporary musicians. His career is very particular. He started as a choirboy (he was given very responsable solo parts). Than, after his voice breaking, he became solo singer - tenor. He took part in many classical music performances. There are not many examples of so brilliant career.
