U Svatého Antonička: Moravian Folk Songs and Dances

Apon 2442

According to wikipedia, "The traditional music of Western Moravia is closely related to the music of Bohemia. It was influenced by folk music of Germany and other western regions as well as classical music, especially in the Baroque and Classical eras. The music is mainly written in major keys, and its rhythm and structure are regular and firm."

This was a 99 cent thrift shop find, in good shape. It sounds like a compilation made from older recordings. It is not on CD.

  1. Absolutely divine music. Could you confirm please if the songs which appear at the end of the film Zert, after Kundera's novel, are also moravian music? Where could I download them them? Many thanks for the music. nicstefan7@yahoo.co.uk

  2. I haven't seen that film, but I'm glad you enjoyed the music.
