Music has accompanied man from the onset, both in everyday life and on festive occasions.  It complemented the ritual symbolism, and played a precisely defined role in the rituals, as was as adding a local color.  The songs were part and parcel of everyday duties - lulling the baby to sleep, grazing the cattle, tilling the field.  They described the joy and the pain associated with key moments in life - loves and weddings, baptism of a newborn baby and the end of a man's life.  They united the village community, as most of them were performed collectively during weddings, baptisms, or the wake over the dead.  Personal songs, expressing individual feelings (love, longing, wooing, sorrow and pain) had their own special place - always sung solo as a highly private, intimate form of expression.  Those are the various types of songs that have been collected on this CD.
The ordering of the songs reflects the successive stages of rural life.  The music material has been selected from the Polish Radio Archive, from among recordings made between 1976 and 2005, both at the performers' homes and during festivals and regional folk meetings.  Most of the songs are performed in the dialect of the given region.
