''The String Quartet No 1 ''Already it is Dusk'' ' by Henryk Mikołaj Górecki was composed in the autumn of 1998 as a commission of the American avant-garde Kronos Ensemble , its first performer in Minneapolis , 1989. In his unique way, the composer represented the atmosphere of dusk, when after a busy day the blessed silence of the night comes. The cantus firmus in viola's part employs, like in the former ''Three Pieces in the Old Style'' , a quotation from a song by Wacław of Szamotuły '' The Prayer when the Children go to Sleep (Elżbieta Widłak , brochure on Henryk Mikołaj Górecki)
