These ten carols (7 from Poland, 3 from Czechoslovakia) are surely among the most haunting and melodious of those belonging to any people. Most are not well-known, or even known at all, to non-Eastern Europeans. I hope that this sequence for flute choir will help introduce them to a wider audience. This will surely become a Christmas favourite. Two exuberantly joyful carols (Shepherds came to Bethlehem and Heaven and earth welcome the redeemer)frame 8 others, many of them of incredible tenderness.
