Górecki: Pieśni Maryjne (Five Marian Songs), Op 54: III, IV, V (12:40)
Los Angeles Master Chorale / Grant Gershon
The Los Angeles Master Chorale’s new album is a tribute to the life and work of Henryk Górecki, known to millions for his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs and as a champion of Poland’s struggle for independence from Soviet control. Miserere showcases the extraordinary power of the full 110-voice Chorale singing unaccompanied. Also featured on this release are the first major label recordings of both Five Marian Songs and Lobgesang.
