Homeland – song for 4 voice mixed choir

This piece has a ceremonial character and was written for the lyrics of poet Konstanty Ildefons Gałczyński. It features a well developed form and is an apotheosis of a common people song. This one movement piece has a A-B-A internal structure where each section has different tempo and mood. A number of transcriptions were written by the composer in the following years to meet needs of individual choirs that included the song in their repertoire.
