Notes and Editorial Reviews

The continuing popularity of Christmas carols in Poland, the on-going tradition of listening to and singing them in family circles and among friends, is a kind of phenomenon in present-day Europe. The present CD contains such works as Zygmunt Noskowski’s Carol and O gwiazdeczko with music by Kazimierz Lubomirski. Some of the recorded carols have fallen into oblivion. Others, such as O gwiazdo Betlejemska have undergone a revival and are sung by both choirs and church congregations. Polish Lyrical Songs for Christmas’ features soprano Barbara Zarnowiecka and pianist Szymon Kowalczyk.
