De Profundis
A Sacred Cantata for soprano, choir and chamber ensemble
By Fr Armando Pierucci, ofm - texts by Regina Derieva

Gintaré Skeryté (mezzo-soprano)
Aidija Chamber Choir
Vilnius String Quartet
Directed by Romualdas Gražinis

Father Pierucci's first cantata to words by Regina Derieva, "Via Crucis" was described as "a major find" and " a remarkable work" by critics. Pierucci writes in a tonal and very listenable style but with a distinctive voice of his own, and this new work, using a chamber ensemble rather than organ, takes as its basis a short, haunting motif, used in variation form in all the movements. This work, like "Via Crucis" is highly recommended to choirs and choral societies.
