Cantores Minores, the men’s choir from the archdiocesan cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Warsaw, gives a free concert of Lenten music on Sunday, March 6, 2016. The concert is held at the Holy Cross Basilica on Krakowskie Pzedmieście Street in Warsaw, where the choir is accompanied by the Basilica’s organist, Michał Dąbrowski.
Among the dozen works found on the program, three were written by Polish composers: an adaption of Chopin’s Prelude in C minor, op 20 nr 28 to the medieval poem, Stabat Mater dolorosa; Parce, Domine a chorus from Feliks Nowowiejski’s oratorio The Exaltation of the Holy Cross; and the Kyrie from Mass in Honor of St. Michael the Archangel by Feliks Rączkowski, the Holy Cross Basilica organist from 1945 to 1970.
The first part of the concert is conducted by Henryk Grocholski, a chorister who has sung in the choir since its beginning in 1990, and the second half of the concert is conducted by the choir’s founder and director, Joseph A. Herter.
