Continuing the exploration of Polish music in this year’s Proms, Paul Van Nevel and the Flemish singers and instrumentalists of the Huelgas Ensemble explore the little-known choral music of fifteenth and sixteenth-century Poland.
Motets by Polish composers Mikołaj Zieleński and Krzysztof Klabon are contrasted with works by Christoph Demantius and Johannes Wanning in a programme of intriguing polyphonic discoveries from the archives of the University Library of Warsaw that includes the earliest surviving setting of a Polish text: ‘Chwała tobie, Gospodzinie’ ('Praise to Thee, O Lord').
