Leoš Janáček (1854-1928) Pagan and Divine Music

In stock

Sung by Czechs fluent in Old Slavonic and the northern Moravian dialect, these three pieces provide a vivid depiction of this old Brno monk. First in the monastery choir, then at the organ, he was very familiar with local ecclesiastical traditions and folklore, where the spoken language permeates its music. His patriotic and humanist fervour shines through intimate and grandiose moments alike. The triumphant Slava (Gloria)… of a Slavonic people.
