booklet: (Polish, English)

This is Orthodox sacred music which should appeal to collectors of such works by Russian and Bulgarian composers. Particularly noteworthy is Twardowski's "Small Orthodox Liturgy" which includes orchestra and which begins in the grave serious manner of Janacek's "Glagolitic Mass" and ends up in a bright spirit of rejoicing which is like the 20th century equivalent of the 18th century Czech pastoral masses. Rogowski's piece was written on the murder of the King of Yugoslavia in 1934 and is full of mourning and darkness. Records International
