This is the second album of the Bulgarian Choral Art series (Vol. 1 - GD 244). The programme includes works by Bulgarian composers, created as arrangements on the basis of original folk melodies or inspired by the Bulgarian folk music traditions. Ever since their foundation, the choirs in Bulgaria included in their repertoires mainly medleys of Bulgarian folk songs. Since then dates the close connection between choral creativity and performance, and the folk song became one of the main intonational sources. Many of the folk-based songs thus created became emblematic for Bulgarian choral art.
