Mysterium Catholicum

Sacred Music Festival in the Cathedral: Music for Lent

Matthias Giesen (organ, Austria)
Schola Floriana (Austria)

Programme: D. Buxtehude, G. Palestrina, N. Rota, M. Reger, Ch.-M. Widor and more

Nino Rota is one of the most quoted composers. The Godfather and Romeo & Juliet soundtracks are familiar to all, but only a few know that maestro wrote sacred music as well. His most beautiful mass will be presented by the male choir of  the monasterial basilica of St. Florian in Upper Austria. The concert also features Giovanni Palestrina’s Lamentations of Jeremiah coming from the Renaissance. Besides Gregorian chant, we are going to listen to a cello and to the Cathedral’s big pipe organ.

Commentary is provided by Piotr Sakharov, PhD in Philological sciences.
