As known, Poltava region is still one of the most rewarding regions for researchers of Ukrainian folklore. Actually, you have already had the opportunity to listen to a few discs from the series "Music Heritage of Ukraine"
. In fact, each of them was devoted to a certain, concrete topic. The present disc differs in this aspect from the previous ones. It is a sort of a review compilation – it includes songs of various genres and styles. Songs of the full year cycle are intertwined into the whole of the fabric – from winter holidays and up to the harvest time. They are mixed with lyric songs, ballads – but there are also a wedding and a cradle melody, and a few dancing ones. Thus, this disc does not set the purpose to recreate the vision of a specific rite or cycle. In this case, we see a wide, varied song palette, which includes almost everything – actually, as well as life does. That is why the album as though helps to change the angle of vision, the scale – and to perceive already a separate integral human life as a certain rite or cycle.
