The Calvinist Hymns concert, organised annually since 2002, is the largest musical celebration of the Calvinist Church in the Carpathian Basin. The event is held to allow concert recordings to be made of psalms and choral works sung by professional musicians and taken from the Calvinist hymnbook, published in 1948. These recordings are then made available on CD and DVD. Now numbering 350 members, the Carpathian Basin United Calvinist Choir brings together the finest choirs in Hungary, as ...well as, year after year, from Transcarpathia, Transylvania, Slovakia and Vojvodina. Collaborating at this concert, which is composed of four sections, will be an organist renowned across Europe alongside four choirmasters. At times, the audience often sing together with the chorus at the concert, bringing the number of people singing heavenly praise in Müpa Budapest's Béla Bartók National Concert Hall to as many as 1,700.
The 17 CDs made from the series so far feature treatments of 276 Calvinist psalms and hymns, some of which are written for a single vocal part for use in church services and to allow them to be sung and studied in schools. Others are performed using several vocal parts to be presented and preserved as choral masterpieces. (Gergely Böszörményi - publisher, concert director)
