Editorial Reviews

Henryk Górecki (1933 2010) made his reputation as a leader of the Polish
avant-garde in the 1950s, with his early works marking the most colorful
and vibrant expression of the new Polish wave. Inspired by folk and religious
influences, and demonstrating a clear affinity with the likes of Szymanowski
and Bartók, the emotional power and clarity of his music continues to radiate
and inspire. Tracing his choral works from the Psalm settings of 1972 to music
written in his final decade, this disc provides a fascinating insight into one of
the most unique musical voices of the 20th century.

Format: Audio CD
The choral music of Henryk Górecki fortunately is being performed more regularly of late and this recording by the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, conducted by Mike Brewer is excellent. The entire album is now available (previously only excerpts on MP3 were available), and the sound of the recording is rich and spacious.
Gorecki may not be a minimalist in the strict sense of the term, but his choral works are all about deriving maximum impact from minimal material. `This is most evident in the ingenious simplicity of "Euntes Ibant et Flebant", the forest of harmonies growing from a basic three-note seed: it's performed with a consummate poise which allows this sublime sound to float heavenwards. The minimalism reaches its apogee in the final section of "Salve, Sidus Polonorum", where he demonstrates the ability to derive momentum from the repetition of the single word "Alleluia". The result is breathtaking.
The tracks on this album are as follows:

Euntes Ibant et Flebant, Op. 32
Lobgesang, Op.72
Totus Tuus, Op. 60
Salve, sidus Polonorum, Op.72
Per merita sancti Adalberti (Through the merits of St Adalbert),
Swiety Wojciechu Patronie nasz drogi (St Wojciech, Our dear patron)
Salve, sidus Polonorum (Hail, star of the Polish people)
Amen, Op. 35

Highly recommended, Grady Harp, June 12

Like Bruckner's Górecki's music moves slowly. First, the composer presents a musical texture and then extends it for a while. Next, there is often a moment of silence. Then another texture. Not all the music follows this plan, but Górecki does this far more than anybody else I can think of since Bruckner.

This new choral recording is very well done. The music is devotional, and very moving.
