Ο ύμνος στην Παρθένο Totus Tuus, από τα επιφανή έργα του “Ιερού Μινιμαλισμού” γράφτηκε από τον Henryk Górecki για τον εορτασμό του τρίτου προσκυνήματος του Πάπα Ιωάννη – Παύλου Β’ στην πατρίδα του Πολωνία. Το ακούμε από την Choir Of New College Oxford υπό τη διεύθυνση του Edward Higginbottom.

Totus Tuus, a hymn to the Virgin, one of the illustrious works of “Holy Minimalism” was written by Henryk Górecki to celebrate the third pilgrimage of Pope John – Paul II to his native Poland.
We hear it performed by the Choir Of New College Oxford, under the direction of Edward Higginbottom.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. • Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
