The musicologists László Dobszay and Janka Szendrei founded the Schola Hungarica in Budapest in 1969. Concentrating their efforts on Gregorian chant, the Schola Hungarica has sung many works from late-medieval choral traditions and liturgies throughout Hungary, France, Italy, Sweden and Bohemia. In depth musicological research on the repertoire and a lively interpretive performance are the hallmarks of the ensemble. The characteristic sound of the Schola Hungarica is produced through a combination of childrens, mens and womens voices. Sources record that in the late Middle Ages children and adults (all male) sang in cathedral, collegiate and parish churches. The choir has made more than fifty records and compact discs, for which it received numerous international prizes. The Schola Hungarica has toured many European countries, and is one of the most recorded choral ensembles specialising in Early Music.'
