Buzarovski uses several psalms and original texts of Radomir to freely conceive the scheme of this oratory. Dimitrie Buzarovski (1952) is one of the most fruitful Macedonian composers with over 70 operas, including four symphonies, three oratorioums, seven concerts, two operas and two ballets, a number of sonatas and solo songs cycles. “Radomir Psalms” oratorio is the only Macedonian work that has been nominated for the prestigious world award for “Grawemeyer Award” in 2003 by the American University of Louisiana, Texas.
