AbstrAct The triptych of works written by P. Ramovš, J. Trošt, and S. Vremšak was conceived in the form of a concert requiem and dedicated to the memory of victims of the communist massacres after the WW II. The emphasised religious frame of a requiem is integrated into a secular aesthetic context, to be played in a concert hall before a concert audience. On the June 29, 1995, a triptych of works, written by three Slovenian composers, P. Ramovš, J. Trošt, and S. Vremšak, was first performed. The work was conceived in the form of a concert requiem and dedicated to the memory of those who died as victims of the communist massacres immediately after WW II and are buried in numerous mass graves in Slovenia. Despite the fact that the triptych as a work of art was intended for performance in a concert venue, its aesthetic character is melded directly with a religious function. In addition, one should not forget the political sense of the work and the performance. The massacres after the WW II are namely one of most burning political questions in Slovenia. Their apparent "ideological determination" is still an excuse for continued political and juridical problems. M . B
