Euntes ibant et flebant starts the current of sacred works for unaccompanied choir in Góreck's output. Writing the textual layer of the work, the composer used two excerpts from the Book of Psalms (125/126. 6 and 94/95. 6). The musical language of the work is based on the notes of Górecki's ''motto'': d-e-f, which penetrate the entire work in various combinations. The composition is extremely interesting from the harmonic point of view, as it constitutes a sublimated synthesis of the major-minor system with the folk music modality. This procedure provides the work with an ''extraterrestrial'', meditative character, emphasized in addition by the strict psalmody appearing more or less in the middle of the piece.
