Chór Warszawskiego Uniwersytetu Medycznego | Daniel Synowiec

Pulchra quia simplex

152 | OPUS 16 | 2017

A selection of the most beautiful works of outstanding creators of contemporary choral music in a unique interpretation by the Choir of the Medical University of Warsaw under the direction of Daniel Synowiec.

According to some ancient Greek philosophers, a work of art had to meet the criteria of good, truth and beauty. Music was understood as a metalanguage assuming the existence of a higher being, an absolute being. From a human perspective, however, every communication with God seems inefficient and imperfect, because - as Dionysius Areopagitus reasoned - the Creator is elusive to the most perfect human thoughts and even the most exquisite word is not able to define Him. God lasts forever, and all our earthly experience is permeated with transience. Time is constantly flowing and we live thanks to the fact that we immerse ourselves in our own death every day (Bernhard Welte). Paradox? Rather a big secret. There are times when this time slows down, in which we seem to have eternity within reach. We experience it when we fall in love, when we admire nature and interact with art. So how do you approach trying to think about the incomprehensible, how best to undertake the metaphysical communication that the world calls meditation? Music seems to be the best means: simple and accessible, and thanks to that, beautiful. The Latin title of this album refers to this thought and we are proud to present it to you. All the songs it contains - despite being contemporary - are characterized by: rich melody, clear form and strong rooting in the tonal system. They can be divided into three groups: God coming out to man, a man corresponding to God and a man in a relationship with another human being.
