He Hangs on the Rood (I)

This is one movement chorale for six voice mixed choir a cappella with lyrics from XVIII century Polish Lent song titled Wisi na Krzyżu Pan, Stwórca Nieba. It was highly marked by Prof. Bronislaw Rutkowski from Music Conservatory in Warsaw (Konserwatorium Warszawskie), composer’s organ tutor. Seeing developing talent in composition Prof. Rutkowski encouraged Tadeusz Paciorkiewicz to start composition with Prof. Kazimierz Sikorski. Equally high marking of the composition by Prof. Sikorski enabled the composer to start studying composition in 1943.
