Description: Dating from 1989 and 1991, these two works are firmly in the Czech historical tradition of large-scale sacred works. Tucapsky's error which forced him to leave Czechoslovakia in 1975 was neither political nor musical (i.e. avant-garde), it was personal: he married an English soprano in 1972, costing him his professional posts. Since 1975, he's made a decent career in England, teaching and composing and never losing the traditionally based styles of his Moravian and, generally, Czech forebears.
