The period of the Enlightenment within the context of the Polish cultural history commenced as late as in the 2nd half of the 18th century and corresponds with the time of the reign of king Stanislaus August Poniatowski (1764-1795). His patronage created favourable conditions for the development of literature and arts, including the music. There are three genres of music characteristic of this period: vocals (religious, secular, patriotic, festive and idyllic songs), vocal-instrumental pieces (operas, cantatas, oratories, church sonatas, solo sonatas with accompaniment) and instrumentals (symphonies, chamber music and piano concertos). When it comes to the style of the Polish Enlightenment music, it drew from the early Classicism and the native musical folklore. In those days there was a tendency to render the home art more ‘national’. The church music from the Polish Enlightenment period does not match in its artistic value that of Baroque. However, it has earned a prominent place in the history of the sacred music in Poland.
