Missa Brevis Pro Defuntis
Period:21st century
Composed in:2005
Musical form:mass
Text/libretto:Latin mass
Label(s):Dux Records DUX 0571
The mass cycles by Stanislaw Moryto featured on this CD (DUX 0571) give listeners a spiritual experience. They can also direct this experience towards a deeper reflection on the mystery of the Eucharist. This is because Moryto is a continuator of the grand tradition of the polyphonic mass as liturgical music. From the formal point of view, the continuity of this tradition is ensured by the normative (invariable) elements of the mass cycle. The principles guiding the use of these elements are defined by the liturgical rules. This concerns primarily the text and, as a consequence, the formal structure of mass, as well as (to a lesser extent) the performance forces. Each of Moryto's masses is different in terms of both performance forces and formal structure.
