Notes & Reviews:

  • The three works recorded here were inspired by Kilar's deeply held personal religious beliefs, his turn towards a new simplicity in music and the recalling of past or present turbulent events in Poland's history.
  • Victoria was dedicated to Pope John Paul II. Zygmunt Rychter conducts the proceedings.
  • 'The entire philosophy of art, every art, is to ensure that it is directed towards man and towards good'. - Wojciech Kilar

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Wojciech Kilar writes music that is meant to serve his religious experience of the world, and he wishes for all art to be directed toward good. Each of his three pieces here is sung in Latin with orchestral accompaniment. His musical material is simple and clear - rhythmically and harmonically.
