»Celestial Harmony: Music for the heavenly court of Hildegard von Bingen«

The Tiburtina Ensemble, founded in Prague in 2008, is one of the best in Europe in the field of early music with its exquisitely radiant, perfectly harmonising female voices. The programme »Celestial Harmony« pays tribute to the legendary Hildegard von Bingen (ca. 1098-1179). The famous Benedictine abbess composed over 70 liturgical chants and was the first woman ever whose compositions made it into the music history books. The programme begins with an antiphon, »O rubor sanguinis«, and ends with antiphons in praise of the Virgin Mary. Experience how their crystal clear voices  transform these precious medieval melodies into timelessly beautiful marvels!

In ten venues around the market square, two concerts of 45 minutes each will take place in three time slots, while in our main festival hall the Glocke there will be three concerts. All venues have two common intervals for spontaneous encounters and thought provoking conversations with other festivalgoers. Single tickets for each concert can be booked at the standard price of 30 euros. So you can decide for yourself whether you want to attend one, two or three concerts for the festival’s opening night!

Tickets: € 30 (reduced € 24)
