Series: PWM Publisher: PWM Edition Format: Softcover Study Score Composer: Witold Lutoslawski
This collection of 10 Polish Folk Songs on Soldier Themes by Witold Lutoslawski, originally intended for male choir a cappella, was written in 1951. The score was published that same year by the Ministry of Defence Publishers in the series Biblioteka Muzyczna DomuWojska Polskiego no. 31. Some of the songs (numbers 4, 5, 6) were also published by PWM Edition in Krakow (1945) in the collection Pod jaworem (“Under the Sycamore Tree”) - a selection of Polish folk songs arranged for male choir a cappella, edited by Józef K. Lasocki.
10 Polish Folk Songs... together with the 1951 cycle of four songs (Wyszlabym ja, Sluzba Polsce, Zelazny marsz and Naprzód idziemy) and the nine-bar Lord Tennyson Song written many years later (as an occasional gift for Robin Boyle) are the only songs written for a cappella choir by Witold Lutoslawski. Numerous questions from famous choral conductors from home and abroad persuaded me to undertake to make this edition of 10 Polish Folk Songs... for mixed choir a cappella.
