One of the themes of the just passed 2002 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht was music from medieval and early Renaissance Croatia and Dalmatia--we will hear a service from this land where Byzantium, Rome and the ancient Glagolithic chant merged together.

NOTE: All of the music on this program is from a performance by

the singers of the St. Stefankerk, Stari Grad on Hvar Island. This recording

was made as part of the 2002 Holland Festival of Early Music at Utrecht.
