Calendar of Events

You are cordially invited to another composed afternoon linking music and archaeology called About the Last Things. The ensemble Plaisirs de Musique will play Renaissance and Baroque music inspired by  ʺthe last things” of a man.  A part of the program is the introduction of a new book dealing with the phenomenon of burial in wooden structures in the Great Moravian Empire.

Musicians – Plaisirs de Musique
Jan Čižmář, lute and theorba
Marta Kratochvilova, flauto traverso

Music program
Sadness: Mille regretz
Farewell: Anchor che col partire
Tears: Lachrimae pavan
Melancholy: Chaconne
Tombstone: Tombeau,

… but even some cheerful pieces of music inspired by the pilgrimage of a soul (to the world beyond, or maybe even elsewhere …)

M. Mazuch, M. Hladík and R. Skopal – the authors of the book
Úpravy hrobových jam a dřevěné konstrukce v hrobech na pohřebištích Velké Moravy (sociální, duchovní a chronologický fenomén).
