"The new studio album by the People's Artist of Ukraine Nina Matvienko introduces us to still little known facets of the famous Ukrainian singer's talent. The nineteen compositions dating from the 16th-18th centuries belong to the so-called "Hetman Era" – the epoch of formation and blossoming of the Ukrainian Baroque. The unique pieces were restored based on ancient manuscripts and rare editions by the known musician and art historian Kostyantyn Chechenya. Among songs recorded on the disc – there is the absolute "super hit" of those days, "Every City to Have Its Habits and Laws", based on music and poetry by Hrygory Skovoroda.
The Ensemble of Ancient Music conducted by Kostyantyn Chechenya took part in the recording. The recording took place in Kyiv Ivan Honchar Museum, and further work on the album continued at specialized studios in Kyiv and New York. Producer of the album – Oleh Skrypka."
