The Tiburtina Ensemble presents sacred songs from The Jistebnice Hymn Book. Dating from the early 15th century, it’s the largest surviving compendium and the most important source of Hussite liturgy and singing in the Czech lands, containing Czech translations of Latin liturgy, religious hymns, songs to be sung at vespers, and Czech folk Christmas carols.

Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert June 17, 2021, in the Rájec-Jestřebí Castle, as part of the Concentus Moraviae International Music Festival. Thanks to WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, we’ll be able to offer tonight’s program as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the link is accessible.
