Description:
Marian Sawa (1937–2005) — Modlitwa Łomżyńska (The Lomza Prayer) (2004) for organ

Marian Sawa (1937–2005) was a Polish composer, organist, and teacher. As a famed specialist in organ improvisation, he taught the subject for many years at several conservatories, most notably the F. Chopin Academy of Music in Warsaw. He was a frequent member of organ competition juries throughout the world, and won numerous prizes himself for his compositions and recordings. With nearly 1000 pieces in many genres, Sawa was an extremely prolific composer, and his own instrument, the organ, looms very large in his output. Besides hundreds of solo organ pieces, there are many works for organ with instruments and voices, and five organ concerti. Like many composers in Eastern European countries, religious inspiration was behind much of his music. Sawa's personal style draws upon the influence of Gregorian chant and Polish folk hymns and songs (even when they are not quoted directly), alongside both traditional and contemporary harmony.

"Modlitwa Łomżyńska" (The Lomza Prayer) (2004) was written for the composer's friend and frequent collaborator Marietta Kruzel-Sosnowska for a concert she gave at the Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel in Łomża, Poland.
