♦ Our Performances ♦

Spiritual concerts:

Most tunes of our spiritual concerts are part of the Moldavian ‘Csángó’ tradition (The Csángós are a group of Hungarians living in Moldva, which today belongs to Romania), because Hungarian spiritual songs could remain in their old original form mostly in this region, since this Hungarian ethnical group’s culture preserved, almost conserved characteristics and elements of mediaeval European music. All these archaic folk music themes with early music elements, which can be heard in our own interpretation and arrangement, give a handle to make some kind of synthesis and we hope they offer a new musical experience as well. The elements of the particular interpretation are as follows: mixing of folk music and early music (using instruments peculiar of the Middle Ages and Hungarian folk music) and use of polyphonic songs apart from unison songs.

- 'The Three Golden Apples' (cca. 50 min.)
Spiritual folk songs with accompaniment on the koboz (lutelike instrument) and viola (Hungarian fiddle with three strings) which cover all the Christian holy days in the whole year, i.e. from the birth of Jesus Christ until the coming of the Holy Spirit. This performance can be recommended for churches or other halls which have good enough acoustics without any amplification and to other places with the necessary amplification, in the whole year.   [video»]
