KRZYSZTOF PENDERECKI (b.1933): Choral Works, Vol. 2 - Missa brevis, Psalm 129, Kaddish, O Gloriosa Virginum, 4 Psalms of David for Mixed Choir, Percussion, Double Bass, Harp and 2 Pianos.
Catalogue Number: 08Q067
Description: A collection of mostly quite recent choral works - the Missa brevis was compiled from several pre-existing pieces and only published in 2012 - in the composer's late, neo-romantic style (although the 2013 Psalm 129 has a little stylistic surprise early on in its six minutes), with the early (1958) Psalms of David to show just how much continuity there actually is between that style and Penderecki's early avant-gardism. No texts. Polish Chamber Choir, Cracow Philharmonic Soloists, Haba Percussion Group; Jan Lukaszewski.
