The musicologists examining the share of liturgical chant in Czech language in the Jagellonian period often encounter the problem of lacking historical sources. Therefore it is surprising that the treatise of Vaclav Koranda the Younger, an important official of the Utraquist church in his time, has not yet been studied in detail. The authoress' study tries to square up with this; it analyses first the content of the treatise and its possible outreach to the liturgical practice, then it brings new observations on the development of liturgical chant translation into Czech made on the basis of the study of the Kolin cantional. At the end she has attached the complete edition of the Koranda‘s treatise.
