Homeland – song for 4 voice men’s choir

Duration: 7'
Instrumentation: coro (2T2B)
Composed in: 1961

It has a ceremonial character and was written for the lyrics of poet Konstanty Ildefons GaÅ‚czyÅ„ski. 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. The archetype of the piece was a song with the same title composed for mixed choir in 1953.
