Ciclo de Orgao.jpg


Cycle of Organ

The Cycle of Organ, that integrates the vast musical program offered by the Shrine of Fatima in the context of the celebration of the Centennial of the Apparitions, proposes a repertoire created at different times and places, with different compositional styles and attitudes that, besides making allusion to a centennial period of time, will also allow those who listen to the entire cycle to have a comprehensive perspective of the expressive capacities of the new organ of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima. Therefore, in the six concerts of this commemorative Organ Cycle of the inauguration of the new organ, one can listen to works that represent periods of 100 years of German music, French music, sacred music, contemporary music and also of Marian hymns.

Cycle of Sacred music

In the five concerts integrated in the Cycle of Sacred Music, some elements of memory - tradition of Christian sacred music are given. It was not difficult to find the "line ", the " understanding horizon " for this specific cycle of recitals, as the presence of the Virgin Mary in music, since her first apparition in the Christian worship, is so deep, so constant and rich. On the opposite, it was undoubtedly more difficult to choose the memories: even though these concerts should be heard in tune with all the artistic program of the Centennial of the Apparitions of Fatima, they are still simple fragments of an immeasurable horizon , where so many voices had to remain in silence!

Musical fragments

During the years of the celebration of the Centennial of the Apparitions of Fatima, on the second Sunday afternoons of each month, several speakers address, in a thoughtful way, the unending value of the Message of Fatima. The VII Cycle of Conferences takes place in 2016 and 2017. The musical moments, which are part of this Cycle, are also part of the reflection. They are short musical moments, small fragments, which aim, not only to enhance the message and the issues addressed in the conferences, but also, on their own, to exhort the listener to reflection, meditation, and exaltation using music as an effective vehicle.
