Comments about the Works

The composition is a continuation of Programme I and Programme II from 1973. Compared to the previous parts of the cycle, here the composer expanded the cast – apart from recitation, he introduced a soprano voice, complemented the group of wind instruments with a trumpet and saxophone, and expanded the percussion apparatus. In addition to the traditional instrumentation, audio-visual elements were also introduced – the projection of the image of the cross from five movable projectors against the background of the altar or nature, using the colours: blue, red, violet, black and yellow. The drama of Programme III was extremely intensified by chanting with the simultaneous action of projectors of the exclamation “happiness of suffering,” supplemented by a frenzied soprano part. The moving completion is made in the finale by the reproduction of the 18 bars of the second movement of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki’s Symphony No. 2 “Copernican” with the words luminaria magna solem in potestatem diei, after the text ending Berezin’s poem: Wreszcie buchnęło światło z otwartych żył [At last light burst forth from the open veins].
