Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0685226522, Hardcover)

First printed in 1953, this book is a collection of 220 familiar Polish songs with a musical score for voice and piano accompaniment. Included in this book are folk songs for group singing; solos, and quartet arrangements for glee clubs and choruses; art songs and ballads for recital purposes. With colorful illustrations by noted Polish Folk Artist Marya Werten and informative chapter introductions, an additional feature of this book is the use of the authentic Polish lyrics with beautiful original English translations.

The songs touch upon the joys, daily experiences and misfortunes of the Polish people. The songs are gay, romantic, sad, humorous, dramatic, and solemn. They are the works and music of the village folk, the soldier, the dreamer, and the poet. They speak the language of the hearts and the spirit of the nation. They contain an infinite variety of tunes rhythms, all very familiar and dear to Poles scattered all over the world.
