    This is a very good edition of a set of amazingly beautiful pieces by Gorecki. The only flaw I found is that the edition includes a guide to Polish that is not very accurate. We had a Polish coach and we found that Polish language is not as hard as...

    it seems, and is not very hard to sing. The pieces are very easy to read and are extremely beautiful. Although the music is very easy to read, it isn't as easy to sing in a well-balanced manner and with good tuning. I would recommend these pieces to any group that wants to include repertoire by a very good 20th-century composer and that is not very hard.

  • 2004-12-31 00:00:00.0 Stunning music by Gorecki!

    These pieces by Gorecki have been performed by the NC Governor's School West numerous times, and I am pleased to say I was enrolled as a student in the 2004 class when we performed these great works. They are simply beautiful, trademarks of the intense, personal emotion that characterizes...

    the music of Gorecki, and made famous in his Third Symphony. These pieces are not for beginners, however! They are difficult and the sound is focused and pure -- difficult to achieve considering the works are a cappella. Nevertheless I would recommend this score for anyone interested in understanding the music of Gorecki a little better.
