Mirko Krajči is a composer devoted to the idea of Christianity both as a man and as a musician, rigidly dedicated to the tradition of Christian liturgical music. In his creation humbleness of man combines with professionalism and sharp intellect. The presence of a child and an ancient experience in the actions of the grown-up remains an eternal theme for Juraj Hatrík. Music joined with word can disclose unsuspected sources of creativity and selfreflection. César Franck spent almost all his life as a church organist, therefore his composing activity often had an utilitary goal: to offer something original and spontaneous to the visitors of the church service.
