Prague developed against the background of Central Europe history as an important cultural hub, that gave rise to unique musical gems, some of which are still unjustly forgotten today. Surviving sources from the early 1500s attest to the spread of foreign repertoire and its influence on the work of local composers. In the impressive setting of the Convent of St Agnes of Bohemia, Cappella Mariana will present lesser-known Franco-Flemish composers, such as Johannes Tourout, Wulfaert Hellinck, and Pierre de Bonhomme, whose compositions are distinguished by their unexpected compositional mastery. Confirming the high level of domestic production, Czech composers will be represented in the programme by Kryštof Harant of Polžice and Bezdružice and Jan Sixt of Lerchenfels.
