We ask questions and sing out against the lack of interest and against keeping quiet. We prefer to melodize topics that are easily (or even willingly) disregarded in common discussions.”

The lyrics were written by Bärbel Mende-Danneberg, Alfred Komarek and Heinz Rudolf Unger. The choir’s rehearsal director Erke Duit also composed the music for the concert program.
