About the festival


Musica Divina is an event that creates a real chance to experience the sacred in music. This is not just another Cracow festival of classical music. Although in the repertoire you can find many masterpieces of early music, it is not an opportunity to quasi archeological study of musical „excavations”, either. Open to all enthusiasts, taking place in a space sanctified by prayer and a rich tradition, the festival is the most appropriate ground for music that has been created for the greater glory of God.

Through Musica Divina we shorten the artificial time and spatial distance between early sacred music and its liturgical destiny. This is not a simple task, for instance due to the reforms of the liturgy that the Church has experienced over the centuries. Therefore, we have been persistently looking for such a formula of events that would allow the listeners to read the masterpieces of sacred music presented to them in the context as close as possible to the original one.

As Catholics we are convinced that the space of churches, open and serving as a place to encounter God every day, should not be used commercially and sacred music performed in church interiors should be made available to everyone willing to listen. Therefore the events held as part of Musica Divina are and will always be completely free.

Musica Divina is a continuation of the concept of the Extraordinary Music Festival, whose very successful inauguration in 2017 we prepared together with the Dominican Liturgical Centre Foundation. We believe that the festival continued under the name of Musica Divina will be endowed with as much trust and kindness of the audience from all over Poland.
