In illo tempore: Tempus nativitatis slovak

Posted in In illo tempore, Our Recordings, Tempus nativitatis at 12:13 AM

The third Album of Vocal ensemble Gregoriana – the second one of our series In illo tempore has been released. We have named it according to the liturgical season which it illustrates – Tempus nativitatis (Christmas season).
The aim of the series In illo tempore is to revive the old Slovak musical manuscripts dated before 1600. These are codexes of plainchant as well as polyphonic vocal liturgical music. The Album Tempus nativitatis was made in cooperation with guest conductor Jan Mikušek, who directed our ensemble on our previous CD nova et vetera too.

  • Bratislava Antiphonary I [1]
  • Bratislava Antiphonary IIb [6, 7, 11, 12, 14, 15]
  • Bratislava Antiphonary IV [1, 8]

In illo tempore: Tempus Adventus slovak

Posted in Our Recordings, Tempus Adventus at 6:07 AM

Here it is! The first CD of vocal ensemble Gregoriana called Tempus Adventus. We plan to record the next parts of the edition In Illo Tempore. Its aim is to revive the musical historical pieces from the territory of the present Slovakia up to 1600. In Slovak archives and museums such pieces cannot be counted by hundreds, but surely they deserve our attention. These are mainly the manuscript collections of the monodic (plainchant) liturgical chants, as well as the polyphonic chants of the same kind. You can read in more detail about these historical pieces in the articles of Eva Veselovská and Andrea Meščanová.
