Quote from

Likewise, when a man turns 50, he is an "Abraham," old enough to have "'seen Abraham."' This tradition is taken from the Bible, particularly John 8: 56-58.

In this passage, Jesus is asked how he could have seen Abraham if he hadn't yet reached fifty. He surprised the inquisitive Jews by saying, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.”

NOTE 1: First performance of MISSA AMORIS for mixed choir and jazz trio was with the same musicians in the big hall of the Cultural Centre in Nova Gorica, Slovenia on November 30, 2023, at 8 p.m.

NOTE 2: Because of the illness in the ensemble all bariton and bass solo parts were "covered" by Martin KOZJEK.

Therefore, we publish only a low-quality excerpt of the photo, as a pixelated document of the time and conditions.
