Shock: Leipzig rejects both cantor candidates

After deliberating for months over the rival merits of Clemens Flämig of Dresden and Markus Teutschbein from Basel, the process was stopped this morning and both candidates were told they had failed.

Instead, the city will now instal interim cantor Gotthold Schwarz, a local man, in the position once held by J S Bach.
