The book includes a critical edition of ‘Jesličky. Staré nové písničky’ (1658), collected by the one of the most important Czech writers F. Bridelius SJ. The edition present this Czech Baroque hymnal book with respect to all three of its key dimensions: literary-historical, musical, and linguistic. The hymns are accompanied by musical notation, and each hymn includes critical and explanatory notes on the text and music, plus a glossary. This interdisciplinary approach enabled the creation of a catalogue of hymns from ‘Jesličky’, giving details of the origin and development of the individual hymns, including their texts and music. The book also includes a CD with musical recording of the hymns.
