Lukaszewski: Musica Sacra, Vol. 9
Format: COMPACT DISC
Zeman, Aleksandra; Collegium Cantorum
This new release is the newest installment in the DUX Lukaszewski Collection, which showcases and presents the musical achievements of Pawel Lukaszewski. The characteristic stylistic language of Lukaszewski is close to artists such as Arvo Pärt, John Tavener, and Mikolaj Górecki, and at the same time it strongly refers to the pre-modern traditions of Renaissance vocal music and Gregorian chant. The key work on this album is the cycle titled Beatus vir, composed between the years 1996 and 2007. It consists of eight songs recalling – successively in this recording – the following characters: Saint Adalbert, Saint Martin, Saint Stanislaus, Saint John of Dukla, Saint Paul, Saint Anthony, Saint Zygmunt Szczesny-Felinski, and the Venerable Servant of God Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski.
