This composition was written in connection with the anniversary of the end of the First World War, and was commissioned by Irish conductor Bernie Sherlock for her New Dublin Voices, who performed the work on 10 November 2019.
In works with a text – as Łukaszewski states – the words always carry fundamental importance and represent a starting point for the musical interpretation expressed ‘in a language that is legible to a contemporary listener’. The composer draws on a wide range of literary sources, including Polish and foreign poetry. In the case of this choral miniature, it was a poem by the esteemed Irish writer and poetess Katharine Tynan (1859–1931).


Renata Borowiecka
translated by John Comber
