Reformation and renaissance are inseparable as the former began in the soul of the latter, and both have bloomed from the seeds of literature and poetry.

In addition, we will hear some pieces of the chronicler and minstler Sebestyén Tinódi Lantos, the soldier and author of songs Ferenc Wathay, the soldier and lyric poet  Bálint Balassi,  and some  Hungarian  reformed  composers such as  Gál Huszár, István Szegedi Kis, Péter Bornemisza, Albert Szenczi Molnár, András Batizi and Gergely Szegedi.
