Christian musical tradition in Bulgaria dates back long before Christianity was established as an official state religion (865). According to some records a Christian church convention took place in Serdica (Sofia) in the 4th century. It is believed that the church chants of that time differed from the Byzantium church music. When East Orthodox religion was adopted as a state religion in Bulgaria, King Boris I put an end to this tradition. The Byzantium liturgical services and chants were enforced. Byzantium church music was dominant up to the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, in spite of the recurrent resistance of various groups of society. However, a few sources from that time show that there were attempts to create Bulgarian church music. The works of St. John Koukouzeles date from that time (13-14th c.). This tendency for developing Bulgarian church music was stopped when the country went under Ottoman rule (14th c.). At the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century a new movement for reviving the Bulgarian church tradition began. Some Byzantium chants were translated into Slavonic language, and parallel to that original Bulgarian Orthodox chants were created. After the liberation from the Ottoman rule (1878), the service liturgies of the Russian Orthodox Church became dominant. A large number of Bulgarian composers wrote works for the church. They used elements of Old Bulgarian chants and reached the level of the Russian liturgical music. Dobri Hristov, for example, wrote liturgies dedicated to priests and they are still performed at church services. In his first liturgy of St. John Chrysostom he uses Old Bulgarian intonations.
The liturgical chants of Dobri Hristov, Peter Dinev, Apostol Nikolaev-Stroumsky, etc. are a inherent part of church services, just as the Russian chants by Alexander Grechaninov, Pavel Chesnokov, Nikolai Bakhmetiev …

PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA

PIETRO PAOLO BUGEJA - MESSA SOLENNE - SINFONIA
ID: GR92
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Sacred Music
Subcollection: Choir

This is the ninth compact disc issued as a result of the initiative of APS Bank of Malta to record a series of CDs with sacred music composed by Maltese composers (released on the Gega New label). The previous CDs presented works of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. This release takes us back to the 19th century and to one of Malta’s most prominent composers - Pietro Paolo Bugeja. He had initial musical studies in Malta and then went on to Naples to continue them in the Concervatorio di Saint ’Onofrio a Capuana between 1791 and 1797. It was in Naples that he wrote his first grand mass for the liturgy of St. Ivo’s Church. In 1798 he returned to Malta and was assistant to Francesco Azopardi, metrolpolitan maestro di capella at St. John’s Cathedral in Valletta. On Azopardi’s death he was selected to succeed him as maestro both of Mdina Cathedral and St. John’s Cathedral.
Bugeja was a composer, conductor and teacher. This versatile activity contributed a lot to the development of his style as a composer.
Pietro Paolo Bugeja wrote Messa solenne in 1827, mainly to be performed in the Cathedral. A very important element of the Messa solenne is its concise form. It was one of the 19th century’s best-known works. Besides it Bugeja also composed four funeral masses, 20 medium masses, 30 psalms, diverse hymns, antiphons and responses. His orchestral works include 9 sinfonie, probably written for church use, since contemporary norm required a sinfonia to precede important liturgical rites. For this purpose, Bugeja also utilized the sinfonia composed for his oratorio Gioas re di Guida - a large-scale orchestral work, written in the ‘seria’ style. According to Professor Richard Divall of the Faculty of Music, University of Melbourne, “the music of Pietro Paolo Bugeja is unjustly neglected, for the standard of his vocal and orchestral writing is very fine indeed. Stylistically Bugeja looks both back in time to the neo classicism of Gluck, with whom he has a stylistic affinity, and forward to the music of Spontini.”

SINFONIA in re maggiore from the oratorio Gioas re di Giuda
Performers: Anita Vella Bondin - soprano, Connie Francis Zerafa - mezzo soprano, Joseph Aquilina - tenor, Anthony Montebello - bass, The Mirabitur Choir, The Jubal Orchestra, Rev. John Galea - conductor

The composer and music pedagogue Alexander Tekeliev is the author of musical scenic works, 2 oratorios, vocal and symphonic works, symphonies for string orchestra, chamber and instrumental works, vocal cycles, solo and choral songs; music for children, solo songs for children; arrangements for folk choirs, soundtracks to films, etc. He studied at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia and completed his master degree in composition with Prof. Vesselin Stoyanov. Alexander Tekeliev furthered his studies in composition and orchestration in Budapest with Attila Bosai (1980) and in Paris with Michel Filippo (1982). Since 1977 he has been teaching at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music and since 1991 he is Professor of Composition and Symphony Orchestration.
A great part of his works have been published in Bulgaria and throughout the world and many of them have been performed in France, Italy, Greece, Japan, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Ukraine, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Austria, Mexico, Norway, etc.
The three compositions which are included in the present album differ greatly regarding emotional impact and expressive means. While Roots is entirely influenced by the unique Bulgarian way of singing and spirit, Symphony - Requiem No. 4 is a powerful work, dedicated to the victims of terrorism. It was inspired by the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 in New York. Even though the composer uses again the expressive means of the specific folk voices, their purpose is to reinforce the author’s suggestion of the universal tragedy. The third piece Happy Birthday is written in the style of a playful joke. The motif of the well-known song appears from behind some familiar tunes by Liszt, Puccini, Strauss, Mozart, Offenbach, Tchaikovsky… It is full of humour, ingenuity, virtuosity and profound command of the art of composing.
