29/08/2012 PREMIERE OF THE ALBUM ‘AVE MARIA’

The Girls’ Cathedral Choir ‘Puellae Orantes’ released its eighth CD record - ‘Ave Maria’. The album contains fifteen most beautiful pieces of ‘Ave Maria’. The repertoire is a sort of a review that begins with the Gregorian chant through the works of Renaissance, Romanticism, Neo-romanticism up to masterpieces of modern music. The most famous and the best known works composed by J.S.Bach/Ch.Gounod and F.Schubert and arranged for the choir, were recorded on this CD among other pieces. ‘Ave Maria’ record contains also songs specially composed on the request of the choir by the Polish composers: Paweł Łukaszewski, Paweł Sydor, Miłosz Bembinow as well as a development of a piece written by an outstanding composer of film music – Michał Lorenc. As the repertoire was selected very thoughtfully, the CD is of a warm and lyrical nature. The project was carried out in the cooperation with the string quartet ‘AIRIS’ and the harpist Elżbieta Baklarz. Solo parts are performed by Aleksandra Topór.

 

The CD was recorded in the interior of Nowy Wiśnicz Castle. The album’s publisher is the publishing house ‘Musica Sacra Edition’ whose director is a composer, Paweł Łukaszewski.
‘Ave Maria’ is recommended by the radio RMF Classic which extended its patronage over the publisher.
