Psalm-traditions: a Lecture Talk

Psalm singing is one of the common treasures of the Judeo-Christian cultural community, a connecting link, a symbol of the unifying spiritual arc of successive and interdependent religions. Prior to the House of Music Hungary’s psalm-singing concert, experts will discuss the diverse musicality of psalm-singing – which varies according to age, denomination and geographical region – along with aspects of tradition in psalm-singing. The programme will be led by music historian Pál Richter, Director of the Institute of Musicology.

The Schola Cantorum will be accompanied by Pál Richter on harmonium, and be conducted by Tamás Bubnó. This is what it's like when the brethren play together...
