Fr. Łukasz talks to Sr. Susi Ferfoglia, professor of gregorian chant and organ at the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Krakow. Susi, who comes from Italy, talks about her passion for music and how Krakow became her home. You will also learn why the Church still needs gregorian chant and how this tradition can be rebuilt in our parishes.
Sister Susi Ferfoglia comes from Gorizia (Italy), but has been living in Poland for many years, she combines her research and teaching activities with artistic activity. She specializes in organ music and the gregorian chant. She leads the female vocal ensemble Flores Rosarum, with which she performs, among others music of St. Hildegard of Bingen. Since the 2016/17 academic year, she has been the head of the Postgraduate Studies in Liturgical Monody at the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Krakow.
An encounter. Crisp thoughts. Inspirations. Teatime conversations (coffee would be quite fitting as well), chats about people and ideas that you as the friends of the Dominican Liturgical Center may find intriguing: Where does the “Polish Dominican music” come from?, What kind of visual art should we employ in our churches?, Who would study liturgy?, What does it feel like to be a catechumen in Poland?
These and many other topics will be the subject of our new video series, “Zdolni” (a pun too hard to translate). Check our YouTube channel or Facebook page on Thursdays to follow your host, Fr. Lukasz Misko, OP, and his guests.
