WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
BBC Proms Chamber Music
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 15th- and 16th-century Poland. Motets by Polish composers Mikolaj Zielenski 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: ?Chwala tobie, Gospodzinie' (Praise to Thee, O Lord). There will be no interval. Finish time: approx. 14:00
