SATB Choir (SATB Choir)
Mixed Voice Double Chorus a cappella. Composed by Pawel Lukaszewski. Music Sales America. Sacred. Octavo. 8 pages. Chester Music #MUSCH75207. Published by Chester Music (HL.14019534).

Item Number: HL.14019534

6.75x9.75 inches.

This piece for double choir (which has a companion Ave maris stella devised for separate performance) is grounded in traditional harmonic progression.

An astonishing build-up of devotional intensity is achieved withnear-exclusive reference to the notes of the G major diatonic scale.

At the pinnacle of the piece an electrifying F natural is introduced, which, in combination with an A minor triad, replicates the climactic chord from thedevelopment section of the opening movement of Beethoven’s 3rd ('Eroica') Symphony. The ‘Eroica chord’ has iconic status in Polish music, playing a major role in the final movement of Górecki’s famedSymphony No.3 (the 'Symphony of Sorrowful Songs').
