The two works: Nadobna pieśń o kozaczku duchownym (in the form of a dialogue between the soul and the body, with each stanza accompanied with two refrains) and Kozaczek duchowny na dwa chóry (a song with a dialogue structure and two lyric refrains) concern the soul’s existence in heaven and the tortures inflicted on sinners. Both texts belong to devotional lyric of eschatological themes supposed to edify a multitude of the faithful. In its melic aspect and subject matter the kozaczek alluded to folk tradition.
