A life journey with John Bunyan – a musical journey...
The Evangelic Choir and Orchestra joined with Emanuel University Chamber Choir from Romania, conducted by Elisei Stefanescu perform the Pilgrim’s Progress Cantata written by Dr Emanuel Balaceanu.
Composed in 2003 for narrator, soloists, choir and orchestra, the Pilgrim’s Progress Cantata consists of a musical version of John Bunyan’s famous allegory being constituted from hymns and songs retrieved in the Romanian Evangelical Church repertory. In 2018 the cantata is orchestrally revised and some of the narrative sections get an orchestral accompaniment.
The Pilgrim’s Progress Cantata brings to life one of the most significant works from English literature.
The Cantata will be performed in Romanian, while the narrative part will be in English. There will be subtitles and programmes in both languages.
