Silent night


     This is my version of music to words of the probably most known carol. I wrote this at the end of 2012 for a Polish choir who was going to take part in the National Carol Competition. As it turned out - the choir won the first prize in their category and also the Grand Prix of the whole competition performing my "Silent night".
     I think that carols should be sung in the native language of singers and audience, because they can give this special magic feeling then. That's why I prepare versions in more and more languages:

Usually one copy of a piece costs about 2€, but I want to share my music with you for free.
Sometimes I even send you some of my scores by e-mail.

However, if you like my pieces I would greatly appreciate it if you donate me.
 

 

 

 

Farewell in China
 

     This one was finished during the last holidays. At first it was a part of a rock ballad that I wrote several years ago for my band, but when I became more and more interested in choral music, I found that the idea, on which my song was based, would suit choral aesthetics very well. So I rethought the whole piece once more and arranged it for choir.

     The piece was commisioned by the Medical University of Gdansk Choir (which is one of the oldest student ensembles in Poland) to open the jubilee concert on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the artistic work of Maestro Jerzy Szarafiński. The idea of enriching the show with a work composed specially for the event came little more than a week before the date of the concert. Therefore there was not much time for writing and the additional challenge was the fact that the choir has maximum two rehearsals to prepare it (as it turned out, there was only one). The conductor responsible for preparing the show agreed to my idea that if in the entire concert (lasting almost two hours) there is not a single contemporary piece, it would be a good idea to create a modern composition based on the last name of the jubilarian. I decided to write a scetch score and tell more things directly to the conductor, because time was extremely valuable in this situation.
