St Francis church is one of the most beautiful baroque churches of Prague. Even if its also one of the smallest churches - 70 seats only - it has long and important music tradition. Order of the Knight's of the Cross with the Red Star, who built the church in years 1681 - 1689, was admired to art and sacred music. In 19 century music productions here were the most popular in Prague. Tradition of organ concerts started in 1993, when its founder - Jakub Chalupa graduated at Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. This concert series runs continuously from 1993 to nowadays, yearly and daily from Easter to November, and it's longest uninterrupted Prague Organ concert cycle.
Organ of St. Francis church is an important historic instrument built in 1702 by Master Abraham Stark from Elgbogen in Western Bohemia. This rare organ is the second oldest in Prague, but oldest one you can hear at concert. In the year 2015 there was large and complicated reconstruction using the most modern technologies and methods of restoration and reparations, so this instrument is in excellent restored shape, and only here you can really enjoy a sound of genuine baroque organ in genuine baroque acoustic.
