Leading the following workshop in EUROPA CANTAT Pécs:

How Great Delight – Let’s Sing Hungarian Choral Pieces in Foreign Languages

This title comes not only from a madrigal by Thomas Tomkins but the same poem inspired Péter Tóth, one of the very popular contemporary Hungarian composers. I would like to introduce other Hungarian secular and sacred choral pices written in German, Latin, Italian and French by three generations of Hungarian composers.
