The concept of the programme is based on the attitude toward primary spirituality: from intimate thought to more outwardly expressed manifestations. Slovenian spiritual creativity can be summed up in threefold diversity: confessional, agnostic, and atheist. These works express categories of the incomprehensible, irrational, mystic, and metaphysical. Mysticism is connected with transcendence. This involves personal testimony about spirituality and direct reflection of the spiritual world.
This juxtaposition of Slovenian early music and Slovenian poetry and music of the twentieth century produces a moving confrontation, contemplation, and spiritual experience. Music by the composers like Georgius Prenner, Daniel Lagkhner, and Lojze Lebič and the poetry of Srečko Kosovel, Gregor Strniša, Milan Jesih, France Balantič, Dane Zajc, Edvard Kocbek, France Forstnerič, Tomaž Šalamun, Alojz Gradnik, and Cene Vipotnik have convergences in the spiritual, which works timelessly, eternally, and openly.
