I would like to share with you the wonderful experience that I enjoyed by purchasing two CDs from György Orban (born 1947).
The work is performed by the Loránd Eötvös University Béla Bartók Choir and the University Orchestra conducted by Gábor Baross, together with four soloists. It is modern classic, but deeply emotional. Reference: Hungaroton Classic HCD 31824. List price $16.97, available from Amazon at $14.99.
To purchase these CDs, order through Amazon at the link hereunder (select "Classical Music" and enter the keyword "Orban"):
