Although I had an off-air recording of this massive work I was encouraged by the very favourable reviews on Musicwb of the recent cd releases from Dux and CPO to invest in one of these (the CPO version).

It is an absolutely fabulous piece! Having been, I must confess, somewhat under-whelmed by the roughly contemporary Choral Symphony by Sir George Dyson (new release from Naxos) I was absolutely gripped by the sheer blazing confidence of the choral and orchestral writing by Nowowiejski. There is nothing "tame" about "Quo Vadis". It positively glows with magnificent conviction and passion.

I add my most enthusiastic endorsement to the commendations of the Musicweb critics. Early 20th century European romantic choral music at its imperious best!!
