Please allow me that, apart from my regrettable ignorance of the Hungarian language, I remain Magyar in my heart and soul from birth to the grave. As a consequence, I earnestly wish to further the progress of Hungarian music.

This is certainly a feast for eyes and ears. The Saint Ephraim Male Choir, Róbert Kovács and Márta Sebestyén are forged into a single unity so that these religious works are performed in a way that will stay fresh in the memory for a very long time. We can enjoy pieces from fine composers like Johann Sebastian Bach, Ferenc Liszt, Olivier Messiaen and Maurice Duruflé. They allow us a glimpse into the musical world of each period, and they trace the development of the musical culture.
