Visas lomas un dejojumus izpildīja Varšavas Valsts baletskolas audzēkņi.

Kammerchor Hof.Sanctus”. Jun 2016

...ein "Sanctus" des Letten Ugis Praulins aus dem Jahr 2002, schließt es unmittelbar und stark kontrastierend an: mit mancherlei Veränderungen von Artikulation und Ausdruck, mit divergierenden Rhythmen, Männergemurmel und Tutti-Glissandi, ausbrechenden Anrufungen, plauderhaften Eilpassagen. Dadurch gibt sich das reizvolle Stück obendrein als eindrucksvoll bewältigter Prüfstein für die technische Erfahrung und Genauigkeit des Chors zu erkennen.

 "In contrast to some contemporary composers who have chosen to pursue a difficult and narrow artistic path, struggling over arcane theories and systems, Latvian composer Ugis Praulins has embraced virtually every style of music as a potential resource for creative exploration. 
While eschewing formalism, Praulins never abandons the craft of composition, seamlessly melding folk song, Renaissance polyphony, the unerring sense of timing of a good Rock song and a confident theatricality, to create music that entertains and uplifts." (ProCoro Canada, 2012)
