The time of the Renaissance and preceding epochs was entirely devoted to the sacred history of Christian thinking: all events in the world serve the fulfillment of the divine plan predetermined from the beginning. Even suffering and misfortune are merely detours on this path and often reflections of the Passion of Christ. The task of art is to repeatedly represent the individual stations of the divine plan and bring them closer to people.

The concert by the Prague duo Kchun and Capella de la Torre, in the lineup featuring vocals, lute, and the solemn brass ensemble of the Renaissance (shawm, pommer, trombone, dulcian), traces the course of sacred history through music from the 15th and 16th centuries for the church festivals throughout the year.
