A new cantata, written in the most beautiful and sumptuous traditional tonal harmonies by Armando Pierucci to poems by Regina Derieva on the subject of the Stations of the Cross.   A suberb new choral work described by one critic as "a major discovery".

"Pierucci’s cantata "Via Crucis" is a most remarkable work. As with all great music, it can be perceived at different levels; individual listeners will no doubt find it their own particular exploration of interior emotion.  The quality of choral and soloist singing is of high excellence throughout - likewise the organ playing… this music is a major discovery and proof positive that great choral writing did not die with Elgar in 1934. It is to be hoped that this cantata will be picked up by choral societies and receive a richly deserved place in the choral repertory." 

MusicWebInternational.com


"Pierucci has created a deeply-felt and clearly moving work of art which is exceptionally well performed and recorded here. The rich acoustic suits the music well, and it is a welcome surprise to encounter such a fine Organ in this part of Northern Europe.   [Regina Derieva’s] thoughtful and penetrating text is well captured by this genuine and gifted composer… A fascinating and important issue." 

Musical Opinion


"...[The music] is simple, slow-moving, making its calm way forward in straightforward melodic lines. Reliable performances, good sound."

Fanfare (USA)


“There is something edifying about the beautiful delivery of Via Crucis. The music seems to cross many barriers. The choruses, solos and organ interludes are simple and diatonic, yet somehow fresh and original. The four soloists are first class. English and Italian translations are included.”
