Baroque Music Translator Filip Adam Zieliński Receives Patriarchal Service Cross

Filip Adam Zieliński
CRACOW 30 December 2019 (ORCNS) - Filip Adam Zieliński, Esq., a Polish author, poet, and translator of hundreds of vocal works of Baroque composers, was recently awarded the Patriarchal Service Cross by HIRH Don Rutherford I, Florentine Archfather. The medal, part of the honours system of the Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarchate, is awarded at the discretion of the Archfather for service to the Imperial Patriarchate or to the arts, sciences, or humanity. It was awarded in this case in recognition of Mr. Zieliński's service to the preservation of Baroque music through his translation of Baroque choral music into Polish. Given the role of the Anglo-Italian Imperial Patriarchate as a living continuation of both the Renaissance and Baroque, Mr. Zieliński's work was considered particularly relevant and important.

Filip Adam Zieliński, was born in the Royal Capital City of Cracow. His father, Adam Piotr Zieliński, is an artist, painter, Cracow Academy of Fine Arts graduate and a civil servant. Danuta Mariola Zielińska, his mother, works in gastronomy. Mr. Zieliński wrote his first translation in 2013 and has since translated hundreds of cantatas. Composers he has translated include J.S. Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, Johann Kuhnau, Johann Ludwig Bach, Johann Ernst Bach and Georg Melchior Hoffmann. Among his interests, except translating, there are such topics as medieval military and weapon, classical men’s fashion, Church’s history and liturgy.
