Dear Music Lovers!

We’ve got good news for you! We are getting back to work full of fervour and optimism  We are working hard to prepare pieces by the winners of the Musica Sacra Nova International Composers Competition from 2010-2020, which we plan to record this July and release on a double album by the end of this extraordinary year 2020  The following video presents Beatus vir, a composition by Szymon Godziemba-Trytek / composer (the competition winner in 2016)

The composer himself described his piece thus:
“The lyrics refer to the virtue of wisdom. Its introduction is a distinct call by the male choir of the words “Beatus vir.” The call’s further repetition becomes a link that binds the composition together. In the placement set forth in the score, the choir is arranged in an untraditional topophonic way. This is in order to include the acoustic space in the musical activities and to correspond with the Renaissance polychoral technique."

The rehearsals are taking place at the spacious John Pall II Auditorium at Cystersów St. in Oliwa, courtesy of Gdańskiego Seminarium Duchownego - GSD, Miasto Gdańsk, Gdańsk Strefa Prestiżu
