Program Notes

For many centuries Poland has boasted a very rich tradition of Christmas carols. Some hymns belong to church music, while others definitely do have a folk music character. Johan de Meij has used both these elements in this suite. You can hear the songs: Poklon Jezusowi; Mizerna, cicha; Aniol pasterzom mówil; Gdy sliczna Panna and Jam jest dudka.
