POLISH EARLY MVSIC
Composers | Essays | Sources | Feedback | Editorial
I don't claim that Polish early music played any crucial part in history of European music. We didn't have Josquin des Prez, Palestrina, Scarlatti or Bach. However, we *did* have a few interesting composers, too. And since they are almost totally unknown outside Poland, it seemed to me a good idea to put together a WWW page with more info about them. I'm no musicologist and serious researchers won't find here, I'm afraid, too many relevant references (so far). The purpose of this web page is to satisfy the curiosity of the rest of us.
Note: Many of the composers are identified by their names and cities of origin, so that, for example, Mikołaj z Lublina means Nicolaus from Lublin (or: of Lublin)
Warning: Embedded MIDI ahead.
There is still a lot of work to be done. But I hope more information will appear here in the future.
