CYRILLUS KREEK DAYS 2020 ON SAAREMAA: Kreek and Orthodox II CANCELLED

Cyrillus Kreek and Orthodox II

Morning service and liturgy
From Cyrillus Kreek's collection of orthodox songs

Ensemble Heinavanker
Musical Director Margo Kõlar

In 1938–1942 Cyrillus Kreek assembled, systematized and adapted for the Estonian the treasury of orthodox songs. The densely concentrated material contains 351 pages of numerous variants of evening and morning service songs and liturgy. It includes the music from ancient Greek and Kiev tunes to the works of Tchaikovsky and great composers of Russian orthodox as well as compositions and arrangements by Cyrillus Kreek himself. The concert series ''Cyrillus Kreek and Orthodox'', introducing his assembly of orthodox songs, is an attempt to create the picture of the sound world of Estonian orthodox church at the start of the 20thcentury. In the first concert programme the ensemble Heinavanker performed for the first time a choice of evening songs from the Kreek's collection. The second concert of ''Cyrillus Kreek and Orthodox'' is the premiere of the next two chapters of his voluminous assembly – morning service and liturgy. The ensemble Heinavanker will be joined by a priest Sakarias Leppik.
