Sacred Music in Twentieth-Century Trieste
By means of this recording, the vocal and instrumental group from Trieste “Gruppo Incontro” wants to offer us an overview on some sacred music. The common denominator of this music are three composers who followed one another as Kapellmeisters at the Cathedral of San Giusto in Trieste since the mid-twentieth century until today. This collection encompasses three different generations and shows that today it is still possible to write liturgical music remaining loyal to the religious texts and respecting the importance of those old traditional rituals that have been transmitted for two thousand years. Beside the choral performances there are also pieces for solo organ by the same composers, performed by Wladimir Matesic playing the excellent Zanin organ (2012) of the Church of San Giovanni Bosco in Lignano Sabbiadoro (province of Udine).
