  • about this album

    Composed during a period of Polish national upheaval in 1981, Miserere is unique among Górecki’s works in its overtly political inspiration. Written for unaccompanied choir, the piece demonstrates the composer’s interest in choral music and his penchant for large-scale, gradually evolving structures. Also included are additional Górecki choral works, with performances by the Chicago Symphony Chorus and Lira Chamber Chorus.
