In pagan times the Slavic Christmas music- Kolyadkas and Shchedrivkas (Traditional Christmas carols in Ukraine and Russia) were a component of sacramentals related with New Year Day and vernal equinox. Later, during the time of the Christianization of Old Russia from Bizantine, Kolyadkas and Shchedrivkas (Ukrainian Christmas carols) became a symbol of Christmas time and other biblical dates and events.
Obviously, such reassess of function has served as the reason of a semantic and stylistic variety of Ukrainian Christmas carols, represented on the disk. The content of spiritual verses is always Christian. The biblical characters (Jesus Christ, The Theotokos, apostles Peter and Paul, saint George and saint Basil, Herod the king and others), and also place of events in folklore musical compositions as though they are passed through a prism of representation of the Ukrainian peasant consequently get typical features of Ukrainian everyday life.
This album represent field recordings made in the end of the last century in the Poltava region of Ukraine. This is original authentic music recordings. The performers are not professional singers. At those time there were many amateur folk bands in almost any Ukrainian village. Now this tradition is vanished.
