Glasbena matica

Until the end of the World War II, Glasbena matica published almost 300 music scores of the Slovenian compositions for amateur singing and playing music. The cultural society, founded in 1872, fulfilled its goal to promote singing and educate masses of amateur singers" by publishing “good Slovenian compositions for church, school and home”. Most editions comprised collections of choral compositions, of which many were adaptations of folk songs for male and mixed choirs. Between the first and the second World War, several solo songs and piano pieces for youth, as well as textbooks for piano, violin and singing were printed. Among the editions, there is also a piano fragment from Foerster's opera Gorenjski slavček, and five guidebooks or textbooks.
