Hungarian composer virtually unknown to Americans before the democracy movements in Eastern Europe, Orban has written mostly Mass settings and other larger forms. Here is a short a cappella piece with exciting rhythmic energy and interesting (but not inaccessible) chromaticism. The unusual Latin text tells of the struggles between evil and the “Heart of Jesus.”
