Gregorian Melos in the Catholic Environment in 20th Century Moldova


Florin SpatariuCatholic Theological Institute “Sf. Iosif”Str. Văscăuţeanu 6, Iaş


In a geographical area that was relatively sheltered from a strong influx of the dominant Catholic culture and religion of the Occident, the Romanian territory and former historical region between the Eastern Carpathians and the Prut River, Moldova housed many Catholic communities in the 20th century. In addition to the religious and cultural educational factors, these communities preserved a rich musical repertoire of the purest Gregorian modalism. In this presentation, I propose a four-point analysis, where I will develop the following subjects: 1. Gregorian music in the context of the Catholic Church; 2. Religious documents concerning Catholic sacred music of the twentieth century; 3. Sacred and Gregorian music in the twentieth century Moldova; 4. Catholic religious music schools in the twentieth century.
