Closing our Easter Festival we turn to the origins. Antique Christian songs will be sung according to genuine monastic manuscripts, with musical instruments that can be seen in medieval miniatures and very rarely in a concert venue. Joined by organ and percussion, they create an inimitable sound taking us into the depths of time and meaning. Is it there that the truth is hiding?

Who is the event meant for?

For those who like enigmas and mysteries, for thoughtful and curious readers. For those who enjoy the novels of Jules Verne and Dumas, who never lose the hope to travel through time and take a look at the precious manuscripts that supply music for our concert.

As for those who are not that interested in history, they will appreciate the wide range of festive “hits” covering almost two thousand years.

Besides, rare instruments are waiting for you: it’s a treat just to look at them, to say nothing about listening to them!

We listened to: Baroque harp, Bow psalter, Kuhn Organ, Lute, Lyre-cithara, Percussion, Voice
