Sanctus Adalbertus for soprano, baritone, mixed choir and orchestra is a monumental, nearly hour-long oratorio dedicated to St. Adalbert. Nothing certain had been known about the composition apart from the fact that Górecki planned to write a ”big Adalbert” following his “small” one, that is, Salve, Sidus Polonorum. Recently, however, the score was found by Górecki’s son among the composer’s materials. At present, the work is being prepared for publication by Górecki’s British publisher, Boosey & Hawkes.
