Throwback Thursday: “Szeroka Woda,” Henryk Gorecki


Gorecki was a modern Polish composer who is probably best known for his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.  This piece is my favorite of his.  It is a very simple arrangement of a Polish folk song about undying love.

Broad waters on the Vistula,

Now I’ll tell you my thoughts.

As it was yesterday, so it is today:

I must be with you through the ages.
