Avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki, born in Poland in 1933, returned to more traditional musical forms by the early 1960s. The orchestration and scoring in his large vocal works is often highly adventurous, using dramatic devices such as shouting and speaking to great effect. The world-renowned Finnish Tapiola Chamber Choir performs 9 pieces of this dramatically beautiful sacred music: "Stabat Mater," "Two Choruses from the Passion According to St. Luke," "Sicut locutus est from Magnificat," "Agnus Dei," "Song of the Cherubim," "Veni creator," "Benedicamus Domino," and "Benedictus." Striking sacred choral works, made even more so by the clear, bell-like voices of the world-famous Tapiola Choir.
