The exhibition will provide a unique opportunity to see some of the manuscripts and first prints of Dvořák´s spi- ritual compositions, which are not normally accessible to the general public. There will also be a special presentation of the autographs of the Stabat Mater, Requiem, St. Lud- mila and Te Deum. Thanks to the Tribute to A. Dvořák 2004 project these autographs will be restored and thus their value will be preserved for future generations.

The composer´s artistic development and the genesis of individual compositions will be illustrated by examples of his correspondence. His deep religious faith will by shown by various personal objects. Period photographs will present the places of premieres. The reception of Dvořák´s spiritual works will be reflected in programmes and reviews. Wide context and the spiritual climate of the time will be rendered in selected works of art.

This exhibition will take place under the personal patronage of cardinal Miloslav Vlk, Archbishop of Prague, Primate of Bohemia.

The exhibiton will take place in the Dining rooms of the Municipal House and will be open from May 3, 2004 till June 3, 2004 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The exhibition will be open during the festival days of the International Music Festival „Prague Spring“ (till June, 6th 2004) and visitors of the festival can see it during the intervals of the concerts.
