XXII Sastamala Gregoriana Early Music Festival continues to combine an excellent programme of international concerts with music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods. This year we are celebrating Finland’s Independence Centenary, Monteverdi’s 450th Birthday and 500th Anniversary of Reformation.
