Described by USA Today as ‘one of Penderecki’s most colorful and extroverted [pieces]’, the Credo is a sweeping, lavishly scored and highly Romantic setting of the Catholic profession of faith.

Its use of traditional tonality alongside passages of choral speech, ringing brass and exotic percussive effects marks it as a potent Neo-romantic masterpiece.

Composed more than 30 years earlier, the short avant garde Cantata recalls the sound world of Ligeti and celebrates the survival, over 600 years, of the Jagellonian University near Kraków.

Krzysztof Penderecki: Credo

Credo in unum Deum

Qui propter nos homines

Et incarnatus est

Crucifixus

Crucem tuam adoramus Domine

Et resurrexit tertia die

Et in Spiritum Sanctum

Confiteor unum baptisma

Et vitam venturi saeculi

****

“In charge of the Warsaw Philharmonic and big vocal forces, Antoni Wit conducts with authoritative fervour, bringing out the dark, brass-heavy colour. The soprano Iwona Hossa leads a well-balanced vocal quintet”
