Young Lithuanian ensemble GŠ Ansamblis has prepared 17th-18th c. Liturgical music, performed in the shrines of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania - fragments of parts of the Mass written in the manuscript "Clavis coeli". This manuscript cancional (preserved in the Martynas Mažvydas National Library) is a valuable 18th century Central European Church Music monument, especially significant for Lithuania, as it was written in 1760 in Grodno, an important city of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Its music was sung in the Bernardine Church in Vilnius, and it is probable that some of these Masses were created by Lithuanian Franciscans. The manuscript is special because it contains some of the first works of church polyphony played in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Clavis Coeli lists only the main parts of the Mass, sung in Lithuania not only in the 18th century, but presumably in the 17th century as well. Between the geographical names, there are two connected to Lithuania: Missa Grodnense (Grodno) and Missa Vilnensis (Vilnius).

The preparation of this program is supported by the Lithuanian Council for Culture
