Karol Szymanowski’s Stabat Mater, set to a Polish translation of the medieval poem, makes extensive use of traditional Polish musical ideas.

His setting of the Veni Creator was composed for the opening of the Warsaw Academy of Music, of which he was the first rector.

The Litany for the Virgin Mary is a more meditative work, yet rises at times to a level of rhapsodic intensity.

All the choral works on this recording are as firmly embedded in Christian musical tradition as they are recognisably of their period.

Stala matka bolejaca (Stabat mater dolorosa)

I ktoz widzac tak cierpiaca (Quis est homo qui non fleret)

O Matka, zrodlo wszechmilosci (Eia Mater, fons amoris)

Spraw, niech placze z Toba razem (Fac me tecum pie flere)

Panno slodka, racz mozolem (Virgo virginum praeciara)

Chrystus niech mi bedzie grodem (Christe, cum sit hinc exire)

“Antoni Wit and his players undoubtedly have the measure of this music, but it is the singing of the soprano Iwona Hossa that lends this disc its special distinction… superb value.”
