First held in in 1992, this is the very first festival of its kind in the Czech Republic. Responding to the constant demand from audiences for concerts of sacred music thematically linked with Easter – an important period of the liturgical year – the Easter Festival of Sacred Music remains unique in Central Europe, an international project dedicated solely to sacred music that showcases novel programming and outstanding performances.
The 30th year of the festival was originally scheduled for 2021. However, since many unique projects and premieres were prepared for the 29th year in 2020, which could not take place, we have decided to merge these two years into one, incarnate the one in the other, so to speak. The original emblems of the body – tortured to death and glorified – thus became even more topical.
