All music in prints and manuscripts from the collection of the royal ensemble at the court of the Vasa dynasty has been lost, however a part of this repertoire - vocal-instrumental religious music composed towards the end of the reign of Sigismund III, the reign of his sons Wladyslaw IV and Jan Kazimierz, survived mostly in handwritten copies destined for the use of Lutheran communities. Thus, almost all extant repertory of the Roman Catholic court of the Polish Vasas is preserved thanks to the Lutherans, albeit only those works, which could be adapted to their doctrine and liturgy - by changing the texts, language (from Latin to German) and selections made of the five-part Mass cycle. This repertory is composed of over 100 works (over 80 church concertos, 7 Biblical dialogues, a few arie spirituali, 8 Masses, fragments of other Masses), preserved in manuscripts written in Gdansk and by foreign copyists working for the Swedish royal ensemble, Duke's ensemble from the Gottorf castle in Schleswig and others.
