It is devoted to exploration of different genres of early music. The particular attention is given to presentation of different traditions of litrugical chant as well as genres of folk music. Evening concerts are accompanied by events running all day long – workshops, debates, seminars, dancefeasts in Festival Club. Each year one of the concerts is prepared jointly by invited artists a and festival participants. The "historically informed" performance practice meets the living tradition. Concerts are held in town's beautiful old churches.
