Prostonárodné vianočné piesne [Popular Christmas Songs], a collection compiled by Andrej Kmeť in the 1860s, represents an important musical-literary source and justifiably it may be ranked as a national cultural monument. As a notable anthology of the Slovak Christmas repertoire (including Christmas hymns, legend songs, pastoral songs, arias, cantatas, Masses and Mass sections) it remains evidence of a unique act of collecting, which has no equal in Slovakia. It has been stimulating for artistic imagination and various music composers, performers, and groups playing historical and traditional music have sought to revive fragments of the collection's repertoire, but in repeatedly mediated and stylised manner. The aim of this source-critical edition is to contribute to the creation of an authentic picture, hitherto absent.
