Death of a distinguished German conductor, 87

The death has been reported of Hanns-Martin Schneidt, successor to Karl Richter as head of the Munich Bach Choir, which he led from 1984 to 2001.

Schneidt was previously music director in Wuppertal from 1963 and, like Richter before him, he would be called to conduct Christmas and Easter concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic and Berlin radio orchestras.

He rests with angels.
