The Symphony No. 3, Op. 36, also known as the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs is a symphony in three movements composed by Henryk Górecki in Katowice, Poland, between October and December 1976. The work is indicative of the transition between Górecki's dissonant earlier manner and his more tonal later style. It was premièred on 4 April, 1977, at the Royan International Festival, with Stefania Woytowicz as soprano and Ernest Bour as conductor.
