This composition was written for the school choir lead by Mr. Zbigniew Soja in PPSM No. 1 in Warsaw. It has a ceremonial character and was written for the lyrics of poet Konstanty Ildefons Gałczyński. It features a well developed form and is an apotheosis of a common people song. This one movement piece has an A-B-A’ internal structure where each section has different tempo and mood. The archetype of the piece was a song with the same title composed for mixed choir and symphony orchestra in 1960.
