Abstracts Fortunat Pintarić was born in Čakovec, where he also finished elementary school. He continued his education in gymnasium in Varaždin. During these years he learnt first steps in music lessons and he met famous composer and guitar player Ivan Padovec. In 1815 Pintarić entered in novitiate and Franciscan monastery in Ivanić Kloštar, and already in 1817 he went to Zagreb to study philosophy and theology. He was ordained on 31st May 1821 in Zagreb, where he also served his fi rst mass. From 1826 he was guardian of Franciscan monastery in Zagreb. During this period he studied music with the help of Gjuro Wiesner de Morgenstern. In 1835 he came back to Varaždin and started to teach in gymnasium till 1852. During these years he intensively worked together with Ivan Padovec, whom he had known from his school days. Furthermore, Pintarić also participated in the Illyrian movement by composing apposite songs, mostly spiritual tunes in Croatian language. In 1849 Pintarić has published Knjiga bogoljubnosti karstjanske, sadržavajuća
pobožnih molitvah i pjesmah [Book of Christian devotion, containing pious prayers and songs], which was a booklet consisted of prayers and sacral tunes, written in Croatian and meant for school youth. This probably was Pintarić’s response regarding the contemporary
struggle to introduce Croatian language and poetry in school system. Consequently, this booklet became an obligatory reading in contemporary schools. In 1857 Pintarić became secretary of the Province and in 1860 also guardian of the monastery in Virovitica.
In this period he worked on cantual known as Crkvena lira [Church’s lyre]. From 1866 he preformed duty of guardian of Koprivnica monastery, and he has died there on 25th February 1867. Fortunat Pintarić was known as a composer of vocal and instrumental compositions. Most of his work never was published. Many of his organ compositions were re-written and in this manner came to other organists, who gladly preformed them. Beside this, PIntarić
has composed many reveilles and other patriotic songs, and in this way he followed path of many contemporary Croatian composers. According to the contemporary press and writings of coevals, these songs were quite popular, though none of them is completely
preserved. His most valuable work was cantual Ckrvena lira, which is preserved only in transcription, since keepers did not store the original manuscript properly. All in all, Pintarić’s opus one can divide into: masses, offertories, hymns, popular tunes, instrumental
compositions, harmonisations and Crkvena lira.
