Schola Gregoriana Pragensis - CZ

The Schola Gregoriana Pragensis was set up by David Eben in 1987 (D. Eben comleted a course in "Gregorian Chant Conducting" at the Paris Conservatory, and spent the following season conducting the Choeur Grégorien de Paris). The Schola Gregoriana Pragensis reserves considerable portions of its timetable for recording and live concert productions, both in its home country and abroad (Italy, Spain, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Norway, Sweden, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and Israel). The ensemle's CDs have received a number of awards (Choc du Monde de la Musique, 10 de Répertoire, "Golden Harmony Award" for the best Czech recording if the year).

The ensemble has been focusing its work firstly on the semiological interpretation of Gregorian chant based on the earliest neumatic sources from the 10th to 11th centuries, and secondly on presentation of original Bohemian plainchant tradition, including early polyphony. Thanks to the ensemble' intensive study of medieval sources, its programmes also include a number of unique, newly discovered compositions dating from the 13th to 15th centuries.
