Hurdís love of literature and the human voice illuminated a natural talent for wordsetting. Hence his catalogue is dominated by choral and vocal works, including operas, Ďpopí cantatas, songs and anthems. He was especially noted for his many scores for children and amateurs, and his care to ensure that the material he wrote was within the reach of non-professional singers and accompanists accords with his conviction that composers should adopt a practical approach to their craft.
These Ďrhythmic and harmonies subtletiesí are readily discernible in Hurdís choral works. The sacred and secular examples presented here range from brief anthems to substantial settings of his favourite poetry. They are all indicative of a desire to engage singers and listeners instantly and a natural aptitude for enhancing the text.
