The Catholic church in Germany is under an increasing amount of pressure as more cases of sexual abuse in its schools and institutions come to light. The Regensburg Cathedral Boys Choir has also been affected.Between 1958 and 1973, several boys who were members of the world-famous choir reported they were tormented and sexually abused. Many of the abuse cases in Regensburg and Catholic schools in Germany date back several decades. Until now the church reviewed reports of abuse internally, but that practice often led to cover ups. Politicians and legal experts are now reexamining the church's practices.
