Die Prinzen (The Princes) is a German music group. The band is made up of former members of the Thomanerchor (a choir of the Thomaskirche (St. Thomas' Church) in Leipzig, Germany, where Johann Sebastian Bach was music director for many years) and a former member of the Dresdner Kreuzchor.
Early albums consist of a cappella music. The band's first name was Die Herzbuben, but it was changed to Die Prinzen in 1991 to avoid confusion with the Volkstümliche Schlager duo Wildecker Herzbuben. The lyrics of their songs are often humorous, tongue-in-cheek critiques of German government or society.
