Křivková, Ludmila ; Stříteská, Leona (advisor) ; Procházka, Karel Jan (referee)
This diploma thesis called "The analysis of selected choral compositions by Jakub Jan Ryba" deals primarily with his religious works. The introductory chapter briefly describes Ryba's journey to music and the activity of a composer and the text is also based on Ryba's own biography published in 2005 titled My Life and Music. The thesis concerns an extant autographic list of his works dated to 1801 and an autographic fragment of an incipit catalogue of compositions dated from 1774 to 1796 including an incipit of Czech Christmas Mass "Hey, Master!" dated back to 1795. Both lists were compared with two electronic music databases: the catalogue of the department of music history, National Museum - the Czech Museum of Music and the musical incipit catalogue of the National Library of the Czech Republic. The electronic databases were further compared with the thematic catalogue which is a part of the monography titled Jakub Jan Ryba published in 1963. The object of interest was also the quantity of autographs and transcripts and the prints of the works by Jakub Jan Ryba which have been issued from the beginning of the 19th century till present. Regarding the results of the research, it was proved that only a part of Ryba's work has survived up till now since Ryba himself presents 1083 compositions, both...

Music on the Choir Loft of the Church of Advancement of St. Cross in the Town Starý Rožmitál
Křivková, Ludmila ; Stříteská, Leona (advisor) ; Nedělka, Michal (referee)
Church music has always been important in particular periods of the development of music, in some of them even determining. The point of this bachelor thesis named Music on the choir loft at the Church of the Advancement of Saint Cross in Starý Rožmitál is to analyze music from the oldest surviving pieces of information until nowadays. The church is dated back to the first third of the 13th century but until the 18th century the information is very fragmentary. However, we can come to a conclusion that the musical development proceeded in similar way as in the other churches because for example the hymnbook "The heavenly nightingale on the branch of life singing praise to his Creator" remained well preserved in two exemplars. In the parish chronicles there are also old records of property, which - besides other things - mention the instrumental equipment of the choir loft. Around 1750, Antonín Platnýř let here constructed the organ that had been damaged twice by the fire; after the fire in 1933, its disposition was changed from baroque to romantic. However, the last reconstruction gave it back the original appearance and registers and brought new precious information, above others the name of well-known organist Martin Paleček. In the middle of the 18th century the teacher Ondřej Poddaný was working...

Theology of music
This thesis deals with relationship of music and theology. It stems from history of development of the philosophic judgement on the notion of ?musica? in antiquity as well as from the contemporary conceptions and definitions of music. Subsequently it proceeds to the presentation of selected writings of both historical and contemporary theologists? dealing with the subject of the art of music. Based on their analysis this thesis comes to the conclusion that a relationship between theology and music indeed exists and their dialog mutually enriches both of these disciplines. Music transcends the limited capabilities of speech and with its own instruments it speaks about the infinite God. This central thought at which the thesis arrives, is concretely documented in musical activities and pieces of work by selected composers of classical music.
