Celebrating their 20th anniversary, on 19 February the Saint Ephraim Male Choir will be taking part in the Mass at St Teresa of Avila Parish Church by Király utca, before giving a free concert. To mark this special occasion, there will be a double premiere with two new works by contemporary Hungarian composer Miklós Fehér, written specifically for the choir. Hungary’s most popular chamber vocal ensemble was established in 2002 by Tamás Bubnó, and takes its name comes from Saint Ephraim the Syrian (AD 306-AD 373), who was a celebrated hymn composer, aptly nicknamed the harp of the Holy Spirit by his contemporaries. The award-winning choir put great emphasis on playing new compositions within the genre of European contemporary music. Traditional works by Liszt, Kodály and Bartók also feature in their repertoire.
