Koszewski's short mass is a clear, fresh, melodic a cappella piece, Twardowski's "Song of Songs" suitable sensuous and exotic, Luciuk's 15-minute "Polish Mass" is predominantly lyrical with some traces of Polish folk influence while Swider's piece - the largest here at 27 minutes - strikes a balance between sophistication and simplicity, remaining very melodic and tonal in both guises.
