What´s new?

Our newly produced CD Proprium und Matutin zum Fest der Hl. Maria Magdalena is now available at the department. It contains liturgical songs from the Augustinian Canonesses in Klosterneuburg, which were sung in the 12th century.

The songs are performed by students of the department, conducted by Prof. Antanina Kalechyts.
