December 2019

Our cantorial choir has not been idle even during the Christmas season. On December 26, we sang during the holy masses at the church Of the Sacrosanct Jesus´ Heart in Most by Bratislava. Our program included two carols and two compositions: „Gloria Tibi Trinitas“ by an anonymous and „ A Betlemme di Giudea“ composed by A. Lohman.

On December 27, we took part in the Christmas concert performed in the ancient temple in Dúbravka built in 1730. The temple was dedicated to the Saints Kozma and Damián. The crouded Temple was the venue for well known Slovakian opera singers and severall cantorial choirs, including our cantorial choir Bystričan. We sang „Gloria Tibi Trinitas“ and „ A Betlemme di Giudea“ composed by A. Lohman and „Veni Jesu“ composed by L. Cherubini. Our performance conducted by our choirmaster Dr. Štefan Martinkovič impressed and was warmly received by the audience.   

The festive performances by Bystričan will end with the singing participation at the he holy messes in the Church dedicated to the Saints Peter and Paul in Záhorská Bystrica. Afterwards, we will finalize the program for the vintage „Folk Songs from Záhorie Festival“, which will take place in Záhorská Bystrica on February 9, 2020.
