Zoltowski: Victimae paschali laudes
Composer: Maciej Zoltowski
Conductor: Jan Lukaszewski
Recording Date: Fri 15 Dec 2000
Victimae paschali laudes is a well-known medieval sequence in Gregorian chant, sung during Easters, touching upon a question of life and death. I use the whole original text; there is also a fragment of the original melody. I tried to join the musical tradition with contemporary thinking. It’s also a sacral music. The text is most important. Everything is subordinated to the text. The piece was awarded with the second prize in the competition organised by the Choir of the Academy of Catholic Theology in Warsaw and Musica Sacra Society. 6’
