C R E A T I O  - CREATION - A Modern Approach to Early Medieval Latin Hymns

CREATIO - CREATION - A Modern Approach to Early Medieval Latin Hymns
by
SATOR ORCHESTRA
on the occasion of 20 YEARS OF MEDIEVAL STUDIES AT CEU
Performers:
Szilvia BOGNÁR – voice
Júlia GYERMÁN – violin
György HEIDL – acoustic guitar
Zoltán KOVÁCS – double bass
Viktória SZAKÁCS - cello
The first piece (Deus Creator omnium) of a series of hymns was written by St Ambrose, bishop of Milan at the end of the 4th century. By the 8th century, at latest, a cycle of hymns has been formed according to the Ambrosian pattern while becoming an organic part of liturgical life of the Church. The prayers explain the first chapter of the book of Genesis, i.e. the description of the creation of world, with reference to the personal life and faith of the believer. The music of György Heidl does not follow the medieval Gregorian tones. The composer (an ex alumnus of Medieval Studies Department at CEU!), who, at the same time, is an internationally renowned specialist of early Christianity, composed the pieces according to his own musical conception. Musicians of Sator group have various artistic background. Szilvia Bognár is a renowned folk singer, Júlia Gyermán and Viktória Szakács are classically educated musicians and leaders of their instrument group in symphonic orchestras, and Zoltán Kovács usually plays jazz and ethno-music. The debut of Sator Orchestra turned out in the Palace of Arts in Budapest in 2008 February.
