The concert is taking place on the occasion of the 1150th anniversary of the arrival of the Slavonic apostles and European patron saints Cyril and Methodius, onto the territory of Great Moravia. Apart from other pieces its programme offers also samples from our oldest music sources: chants from the Bratislava Notated Missal and Fragments from Košice as well as part of the repertory of the precious printed source, hymnbook Cantus Catholici, occupying an important position in the history of Slovak music. The works of the top representatives of the vocal polyphony will sound during the evening, too.

A guest performance at the BMF will be given by the singing choir Adoremus. Since its origin in 1992 the choir has purposefully focused on the rendition of sacred music.
