Thinking Homeland

Duration: 5'
Instrumentation: coro (2S2ATB)
Composed in: 1982

These two songs for six voices mixed choir were composed at the request of father Kazimierz Szymonik for the Choir of Akademia Teologii Katolickiej in Warsaw. Compositions were inspired by the lyrics of Karol Wojtyła (future pope John Paul II) taken from the collection of poems Myśląc Ojczyzna. The form is similar to motet with modern character, adequate however for a good amateur choir. Despite the fact that the songs use poetry of Pope, they are not religious compositions.
