The compositions collected in the Warsaw Musical Society Tablature originated in the circles of the Polish royal court after 1550. It was possible to identify some of their authors: Jakub Sowa (the virtuoso organ player at the court of Sigmund III Vasa, working there under the direction of Asprillo Pacelli, murdered during the trip of the king across Sweden, in 1594), Marcin Wartecki (a royal musician in 1564-1568), Marcin Leopolita (died 1589; educated in Lvov and at Cracow Academy; he was probably a student of Sebastian of Felsztyn; in 1560 he became a composer of the king Sigmund August; his Missa Paschalis is one of the most outstanding works of the Polish Renaissance). Krzysztof Klabon (1550-1616; a composer, flautist, lutinist and singer at the royal courts of Sigmund II, Sigmund III and Stefan Batory). The Tablature contains also a composition of the famous Waclaw of Szamotuly.
The range of the late Renaissance works, recorded in the Tablature, corresponds to the royal employment of their authors. Four and five voice, short organ compositions accompanied church ceremonies, sometimes as a prelude, sometimes an interlude, sometimes a commentary on the liturgy, most probably celebrated in the Warsaw collegiate church or Cracow cathedral.
The Warsaw at the close of the 16th century, for only a few years then the capital of Poland, can be proud of its beautiful musical chapter, while Warsaw musicians of the 21th century undertake its creative interpretation.
