Andrzej Kosendiak found himself experiencing a renewed fascination with repertoire from 17th and 18th century composers with whom he'd been acquainted with at the beginning of his musical path. During his preparation for this release, he was torn between the availability of knowledge about the works in question and the sensibilities of a perfomer living in the second decade of the 21st century. The idea of performing Mielczewski's vespers in the way they were performed in larger and richer centres like Gdansk or Wroclaw in the second half of the 17th century seemed highly appealing. In the double choir works, Kosendiak was particularly mindful of the ensembles' spatial arrangement (placed opposite each other) and that it be reflected in the sound of the recording. For space plays an exceptionally vital role in Mielczewski's works written in the spirit of the Benetian polychoral tradition. The acoustics of the NFM offer fantastic opportunities of realizing the composer's spatial concepts.
