While part of the Evangelos team was in Poland few months ago, we had the privilege of shooting this video with one of Cithara Sancorum’s members, Agata. We hope you enjoy the crazy instruments and their talent and passion for bringing God’s Word, using their skill and dedication to help people hear, understand, enjoy, and remember the Gospel.
About Cithara Sanctorum (Quoted from https://www.facebook.com/citharasanctorum)
“If we sing poetry, we should be singing the most powerful poetry we know–the Gospel. This is the character of the music performed by Cithara Sanctorum. A group of musicians who go back to works from the Medieval and Reformation eras, filling their repertoire with Geneva Psalms, Latin hymns, Hussite and Lutheran liturgy, and folk music. These songs are beautiful, full of evangelical content, and mostly forgotten. Cithara Sanctorum extracts them from the old kancjonałów, revives them, and proposes their own (sometimes surprising) interpretations.
The name, “Cithara Sancorum” was borrowed from a kancjonału by Fr. George Trzanowskiego, who is sometimes called, “Slavic Luther.” During their concerts, Cithara Sancorum tries to reproduce the atmosphere of the old days, performing in historical costumes and using replicas of historical instruments such as the lyre, hurdy-gurdy, Renaissance lute, or rebec.”
