Mutual trust, harmony and peace are values that are not easy to achieve and cultivate, and are often closely bound up with the disputes, suffering and confusion that precede them. The process of seeking and striving to trust oneself and others is full of doubt, fear and pain on the one hand, and excitement, beauty and joy on the other. This palette of feelings and emotions is musically reflected in the works that make up the Music of Trust, the first monographic album with music by Zuzanna Koziej. The compositions are based on Latin liturgical and biblical texts, which the composer treats in a universal way, addressing both believers and non-believers. The core of the album are the most extensive Stabat Mater and Mass of Trust, preceded by more modestly sized choral pieces.
