In Vigilia de Conceptione Beatae Mariae Virginis iuxta ritum ecclesiae Metropolitanae Salisburgensis

 

The Feast of the Immaculate Conception dates back to the 10th century, but it was celebrated by the Franciscans from the 13th century as part of their own spirituality. Franciscan Pope Sixtus IV prescribed the feast for the Diocese of Rome in 1477. Subsequently, Pope Clement XI ordered in 1708 to celebrate this feast throughout the Catholic Church. Both the dogma of 1854 and the appearance of Our Lady in Lourdes led to the popularization of the festivity. The vigil (Matutinum) that we will hear today follows the Cursus Romanus (the order of the cathedrals) according to the customs and special rites of the Archdiocese of Salzburg.

Franz Karl Prassl, conductor

 

Franz Karl Prassl, conductor. Currently Gregorian chant professor at PIMS, he studied theology and obtained his Ph.D. in Liturgy under Philipp Harnoncourt, and in Music (liturgical music, organ, choral and orchestral conducting) in Graz. He was also taught by Gregorian chant professors, such as Godehard Joppich, Luigi Agustoni and Johannes Berchmans Goschl. From 1982 to 1992 he was the organist at Klagenfurt Cathedral, and from 1982 to 1989 he was the music director of the Diocese of Gurk. Since 1989 he has been Gregorian chant and Repertory of Liturgical Music professor at the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Graz. He has also been a guest at the University of Music Vienna, Innsbruck and Zagreb. In 2011 he was appointed Gregorian Chant Professor at the PIMS. He has taught numerous master classes and master lessons in Europe, the United States, Beijing and Taiwan. As an organist and choir and orchestra conductor, he has published many recordings and performed numerous productions with the Austrian Public Radio.

Schola Gregoriana del Pontificio Istituto di Musica Sacra. Created in 1911, the same year that academic training in music began at the Scuola Superiore di Musica Sacra. The main purpose of the Schola is the constant exercise of Gregorian chant providing students with mastery and competence in the matter. In this way, at the end of their studies, when they return to their respective dioceses, they will disseminate their experience as Chapel Masters at Cathedrals or teachers at diocesan sacred music schools. The Schola actively collaborates with Vatican Radio and participates in papal liturgies in the Sistine Chapel. Many Students of the Istituto have subsequently founded their own Scholae Cantorum and perform Gregorian chants in the liturgy, in concerts (United States, 2018) and in high level festivals (Watou, 2018, and Krakow, 2019).
