"Die Identifikation der Kölner mit "Du bes die Stadt/Highland Cathedral"
hat in der Tat eine riesige
und - in den Konzerten - teils berührende Dimension erreicht. Nicht selten steht das Publikum geschlossen auf und singt das Lied hymnengleich mit."


Remember November 2002:

"Wir gehen davon aus,daß der Titel unaufhaltsam seinen Weg zu einer neuen Köln-Hymne machen wird..."
