Frane na Obali and magister musicae at the cathedral of sv. Dujam in Split, the ensemble „Projekt Lazarus“ performed in Franciscan churches in Split, on April 8th (sv. Frane na Obali) and Šibenik on April 9th, 2018 (sv. Frane-svetište sv. Nikole Tavelića). Following the principles of revitalization of the Croatian musical heritage „Projekt Lazarus“ presented to the Šibenik and Split public motets from Lukačić’s „Sacrae cantiones“, published in Venice in 1620. The attending audience at both concerts listened with great care and greeted the artists with an intense applause.
