Regensburg, Germany, Jun 17, 2021 / 06:15 am
A German Catholic diocese announced Tuesday that a cathedral school whose pupils sing in a 1,000-year-old boys’ choir will admit girls.
The Diocese of Regensburg said June 15 that the cathedral school associated with the Regensburger Domspatzen choir will be open to girls from 2022.
The school in the southern German city of Regensburg will form its own girls’ choir, reported CNA Deutsch, CNA’s German-language news partner.
The diocese explained that the step was intended to “make the high-quality musical training of this institution accessible to girls in the future.”
