MusicAtlas: Mainz (Mayence)

The Moguntia Auria (“golden Mayence”) of Roman times became in the middle ages the leading arch-diocese of Germany. Own liturgy (in Mainzer Cantual) maintained until 1803 (cf. Kiedrich >3.16).

In the city of Gutenberg flourished music printing from 1512 until the present day (Schott).

On occasion of the 2000th anniversary of the town in 1962 Hindemith composed Mainzer Umzug.
