Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thematically, this collection of great Polish choral works turns between religion, war and Polish folk culture. The wide range and compositional depth of the pieces are simply spectacular. Considering Poland's turbulent political history, it is surprising that the country has produced so many outstanding composers, particularly those of the 20th century such as Karol Szymanowski, Krzystof Penderecki and Witold Lutoslawski.
