The songs are gay, romantic, sad, humorous, dramatic, and solemn. They are the words and music of the village folk, the soldier, the dreamer, and the poet. They speak the language of their hearts and the spirit of their nation. They contain an infinite variety of tunes and rhythms, all very familiar and dear to Poles scattered all over the world today.
