"Years have passed…" one of the most popular Bulgarian city songs of olden days, is the title piece of this collection of 16 excellent songs (mainly romances and tangos). The singers - Emilia Veneva and Kostadin Gougov (a much loved folk singer) perform the arrangements by Emil Kolev and Hristofor Radanov with sincere and deep-felt emotion, expressing the mood and masterfully underlining the meaning of the lyrics. This type of everyday romantic music was developed approximately at the beginning of the 20th century and was handed down from generation to generation. The people who still love these songs are moved by the romantic flavour, preserved both in the lyrics and the music - tunes that are beautiful, tender, elegiac; their simplicity is disarming; they are easy to understand and easily remembered. The songs are sung in Bulgarian.
