They have honed their vocal skills in the city famous for Oktoberfest, BMW and lederhosen.

And now the Vokal Ensemble München (Munich Vocal Ensemble) is bound for Wymondham as part of a UK tour to mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

The vocal group of around 25 singers was founded in 1992 and specialises in the 15th to 18th centuries, with forays into romantic and contemporary pieces.

In Wymondham, they will perform German Lutheran pieces from the 16th and 17th centuries including compositions by Hans Leo Hassler, Johann Hermann Schein and Heinrich Schütz.

The concert will also pay tribute to the writings and ideas of Martin Luther.
