***Aktualności***

W kolejną niedzielę, 1 maja, odbędzie się pełna już forma liturgii, z Kyrie i Gloria, które tradycyjnie były pomijane w czasie postu. Jeżeli chodzi o muzykę organową, to na wejście zaimprowizuję preludium na temat "Zwycięzca śmierci, piekła i szatana", na Komunię zabrzmi Intermezzo z opery "Cavalleria Rusticana" Pietra Mascagniego, na koniec - preludium "Wesoły nam dzień dziś nastał" Stanisława Moniuszki. Myślę, że radosny ładunek polskich pieśni kościelnych doskonale nadaje się do wykonania w kościele dowolnego wyznania - a zatem nasi parafianie nie będą mieli nic przeciwko.

=========================================================


Enjoy with us the next Sunday celebration, with full order of Liturgy (after the Lent) with Kyrie and Gloria. 
About organ music: 
For the beginning (10.25) I will improvise an Easter Prelude based on famous Polish tune "Winner of death, hell and the devil". The tune is known from 18th Century and was used by many of Polish composers in theirs works (for example, Feliks Nowowiejski). 
On the Communion I will play famous "Intermezzo" from the "Cavalleria Rusticana", an opera by Pietro Mascagni (1863-1945). This music, originally for organ, harp and strings, sounds, when action happens in church, but now lives with its own life, thanks to Karajan, Muti and others. 
On the end I will prepare short, but striking Prelude by Stanisław Moniuszko (1819-1872) "Happy day has come for us today", based on the same tune, known in different metrical/rhytmical versions since 16th Century (one of most ancient Polish tunes). Moniuszko was "the Father of Polish National Opera" and took after Karol Kurpiński the leadership in Warsaw Theatre, but first of all he was great organist and composer of church music (he was an organist of St. Johns University Church in Vilnius till many years). His organ pieces (1840) are initiated Polish organ work/production after its longest break, when never was composed after ca. 1680! So, Moniuszko was not only the opera's "father", but of modern Polish organ music too.
