Abstract

The IInd Eucharistic Congress in Yugoslavia (Ljubljana 1935) can be observed as the culmination of endeavours to revive Eucharistic life as well as to promote the organizers (themselves). Those in charge of the musical programme availed themselves of the event with the aim of carrying into effect practical reforms in church music. In spite of their determination to eliminate secular tendencies from the music performed within and during the religious congressional festivities, the congress programme could not evade the influences of the profane music idiom to the full.
