Nacho Duato is inspired tightly by the music of Górecki, under the same title. O Domina Nostra was conceived by the Polish composer in 1982, in celebration of the 600th anniversary of the Black Virgin of Jasnogora – a sacred symbol of Polish independence to whom, in times of crisis, Poland’s prayers are addressed. As in his wont, Górecki revised the piece in 1985 and again, for this recording, in 1990. It is scored for the combination of solo organ and intoning voice (soprano). It is precisely, the figure of the Virgin as the mother of Jesus Christ, as a link between the divine and eternal, and man and telluric force, what Duato wants to emphasize with this ballet, composed to be danced by ten men and a woman.
