Octava Ensemble once again reaches for sources of Christian traditions and sacral music. The vocal octet, together with Collegium Copernicus group, invite listeners for meetings with the cycle Ad radices musicae.

How does this return to roots work? Masses by composers of the Renaissance and Baroque resound in their natural surroundings; they are performed for their intended purpose, accompanying the Mass worship. According to Zygmunt Magiera, artistic director of the Octava Ensemble, “People often forget that this music had a specific function. It stressed the beauty of liturgy and had a direct connection with spiritual experiences focused around prayer.”


Mass of All Time. Franciszek Lilius – Opera omnia

Performers:
OCTAVA ensemble & Collegium Copernicus
Zygmunt Magiera - musical direction, conductor
