Kzysztof Penderecki : Veni Creator : SSAATTBB : 01 Songbook : 073999241761 : 49012115

Kzysztof Penderecki : Veni Creator

Composed in 1987, this work for a cappella chorus of approximately nine minutes' duration was written on the occasion of the bestowing of an honorary doctorate on the composer by the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid. Penderecki employs four stanzas of the traditional verse attributed to Hrabanus Maurus, and assigns varying numbers of voices within the four overlapping standard ranges (SATB) so that the density of the choral sound is also modulating throughout the piece which proves to be a particularly effective device for creating musical imagery.

Ave Maria : SSAATTBB : 0 : Sheet Music : 14019534 : 884088659554

Ave Maria

This piece for double choir (which has a companion Ave maris stella devised for separate performance) is grounded in traditional harmonic progression. An astonishing build-up of devotional intensity is achieved with near-exclusive reference to the notes of the G major diatonic scale. At the pinnacle of the piece an electrifying F natural is introduced, which, in combination with an A minor triad, replicates the climactic chord from the development section of the opening movement of Beethoven's 3rd (Eroica) Symphony. The Eroica chord has iconic status in Polish music, playing a major role in the final movement of Górecki's famed Symphony No. 3 (the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs).
