In August the 7thPühalepa Music Festival takes place on the Island Hiiumaa. The goal is to present early music and contemporary composer´s works, including Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür, who was born on Hiiumaa. This year all the concerts take place in Pühalepa church. There are many festivals focusing on one particular composer Kreek Days, Pärt’s music days, etc As Erkki-Sven Tüür is from Hiiumaa, it fits well to performe his music here,” said artistic director of the festival, Endrik Üksvärav. The second goal is to introduce a variety of early music.

In 2014 Erkki-Sven Tüür’s a cappella choral work “Missa brevis” Estonian premiere took place in Pühalepa Music Festival. It was performed by high-level chamber choir Collegium Musicale (www.collegiummusicale.ee).

The Pühalepa Church is Hiiumaa’s oldest stone church. In 1255, the German Order started the construction of a stone fortress-church. Initially lacking a steeple, the arched stone church was completed in the 14th century; construction of the steeple started in 1770. After it renovation in the 19th century, Crosses of Malta were painted on the walls that are primarily associated with the membership of the Ungern-Sternberg family members in this Order.  One of the inauguration crosses has survived on the wall of the choir room.  The burial chapel of the von Stenbock family is in the churchyard.
