The 1 hour evening concert I attended started at 5. Tickets can be bought at the door the day of the concert (even just before the concert) or at the Via Musico shop beside the Tyn Church. These tickets were the most reasonable for a Church concert - 250 Kr for seniors. I heard a trumpet and organ concert, but the performers and program change daily. There is a Prague concert website which is excellent in informing visitors about the venues, performers, and program. I attended 2 concerts in different churches by buying tickets at the door - no need to buy online tickets. The church pews are quite uncomfortable to sit on so be smart and sit in an available chair. The trumpeter was in the organ loft playing so it was rather strange to be facing forward looking at the front of the church while the performers were behind us.
However, the beauty of this baroque church can be appreciated for a whole hour while listening to the music. The stand out features in this church, for me, were the lovely painted frescoes on the ceiling and the creamy lightly gilded round arch columns. The main round crystal chandelier was gorgeous hanging low from the frescoed dome high overhead. The walls, at various points above the arches, also had single paintings/frescoes framed with gilt. Usually one needs a zoom lens or binoculars to enjoy these paintings - to see the detail, the story - as they are so high up. The decorative black wrought iron balconies made it seem there was a second floor above the main floor. Even the organ pipes had large gilded angels flapping their wings enjoying the music. Stained glass windows along the side were unusual in that clear glass surrounded a figure in stain glass. The church is not huge so about 15 minutes would do for a short visit if one were not attending a concert. Because of the 5pm concert, this church closes its doors at 4pm to the general public.
