The presented volume of Leoš Janáček's (born July 3rd 1854 in Hukvaldy, died August 12th 1928 in Moravská Ostrava) liturgical compositions is a selection from a number of pieces of art sui generis which have been preserved until nowadays. It consists of twelve compositions in which Janáček used exclusively Latin liturgical texts. Unlike České církevní zpěvy (Czech Church Hymns) published in Lehnerův mešní kancionál (Lehner's Mass Hymnbook) and Církevní zpěvy české vícehlasé (Polyphonic Czech Church Hymns) published in Příborský kancionál (Příbor Hymnbook) it is a rather homogenous collection.
Janáček published six church compositions for mixed chorus in Sborník skladeb z pražských studií (The Collection of Compositions from Prague Studies) from the years 1874-1875: Graduale Speciosus forma, Introitus In nomine Iesu, Benedictus, twice Exaudi Deus and Communio Fidelis servus. The pentad Regnum mundi, Exurge Domine, Graduale Suscepimus, Offertorium Constitues eos and Veni, Sancte Spiritus was created duringJanáček´s studies at the Prague Organ School and in the following years. Finally, we attach a torso of Latin Mass in E Flat Major.
