Poland has more Christmas Carols than any other nation in the world.  Many have a folk song character and are called pastoralki or shepherd's carols.  Some contain dance rhythms like the Krakowiak and Mazurka.  Folklorist John Jaworski has spenty many summer
vacations in Poland searching through bookstores for old and forgotten carols.  With this recording he hopes to preserve them for posterity.
In his thirty-plus years of performing, John Jaworski has sung, played, and recorded with such groups as the Keynotes, Chi-Town Express, Stas Golonka, Stas Bulanda, and several more from the Chicago area. One of his recordings was as a member of the Three Polish Tenors on Chicago Records. One of his musical achievements of which he is most proud was an old- country style album on which he collaborated and performed with Chet Kowalkowski. It was chosen by the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. as a recording which best typifies the Polish folk genre. Jaworski retired from the profession of teaching in June of 2006 after 34 years of service.  His family has been his greatest influence in keeping this great musical tradition alive.
