Title: Príspevok k hudobnému životu v Spišskej Belej do 19. storočia
Author: Gabriela Ščigulinská

Abstract: Musical life in the town of Spišská Belá up to the 19th century is the main subject of the presented contribution. It deals with the history of the town focusing on the musical production as this subject has not been surveyed in detail so far. The study brings a present state of the register of Spišská Belá school rectors (those being probably also cantors) compiled from the information acquired from various sources and on the basis of the writer’s own field research. In Spišská Belá many important exponents were active in the past: e.g. Ján Fabri, who copied the music-theoretical treatises of Leonard Stöckel; Benedikt Schimrag, father of Ján Šimbracký/Šimrák (they lived here for 7 years, thus it is highly probable that Šimbracký/Šimrák attended the school in Spišská Belá). The study points to a newly discovered but yet unexamined Hymnbook from Spišská Belá coming from 1753 deposited in the Library of the Evangelical Church of Augsburg Confession in Levoča; we have succeeded in presenting new findings regarding the name added later on the hymnbook’s title page.
