OLD VERSUS NEW: THE CONFRONTATION IN SLOVAK LITURGICAL MUSIC OF THE 1990s
Languages of publication
The differentiation of the individual streams of Slovak catholic liturgical music became obvious in late 1980s and the process continued during the 1990s. Opinions in this period varied a lot. Such affinity results in latent but sometimes even manifesting conflicts. Rhythmical songs of youth choirs became a real alternative to the Unified Catholic Songbook. In the beginning the older generation thought the repertory to be a profanation of liturgy. Yet, in the second half of 1990s, even the older churchgoers gradually started to accept the new music of the youth. This caused a change in the social impact of this genre. As indirect consequence further development was greatly slowed down.
