Maria, Maria, Heavenly Angel

Most of us have heard about the eastern roots of Hungarian folk song and folk music, about its transmission across generations, about its importance in the everyday life of peasant folk. Yet we rarely wonder how many centuries old this tradition actually is, whether certain melodies have their roots in the Baroque or Renaissance periods, or even in Gregorian chant. Moreover, as folk songs are spread by word of mouth, it might never occur to us that some of the songs we know today – or variants of them – are preserved in period codices, manuscript hymnals, melodiacs, graduals, songbooks, or even hymnbooks. It is true that in this case the links do not lead eastwards beyond the Hungarian language area as a whole, but mostly to other European countries. In the fourth of a series of folk music lectures by Szilvia Bognár, the figure of Mary will be the subject of an interactive programme including song learning.

The language of this lecture is Hungarian.
