The Litvins (Lithuanians) is an old name of the Belarusans. Litva (Lithuania) is an old name of Belarus. The Grand Duchy of Lithuania (GDL) is the Litvins’ state. Vilnia (Vilnius) is the capital of the old Litva. The Litvins’ treasures are the spiritual values of both local and West European origin. Renaissance is the Golden Age of the Old Belarusan (Lithuanian) art that started in the 16th century from a wide interaction of the Old Belarusan and West European cultures and ended with the "deluge", i.e. the catastrophic war in the middle of the 17th century. Polacak Adversaria (1, 4, 9, 10) is a miscellany of the aulic chamber music of the late 16th – early 17th centuries, collected in Belarus from then popular songs and dances of Belarusan and West European (adapted for the local traditions) origin. Battle At Vorsa (3) is a martial song of the 16th century, written to honour the battle at Vorsa (1514). According to another version, the song was written to order of King in 1614 to the battle’s 100th anniversary. The words are found by V.Lastouski in 1916, the music is folk, from M.Fiedarouski’s collections (the 19th century). In King’s Army (6) is an instrumental performance of a Belarusan martial song of the 16th century, written to honour King Stephan Batory’s campaign to liberate Polacak. Its another title is Stephan The Waywode. Vilnia Adversaria (11) is a miscellany of the aulic chamber music written by an unknown composer, collected in 1600 in Vilnia. Dyjamied Kata, Belarusan composer of the late 16th century, who lived and worked in Vilnia, is one of the probable authors. Oakery (13) is an instrumental performance of a Belarusan ballad of the 16th – 17th centuries about a soldier’s heroic death. Armed Knight (16) is a chivalresque song of the 17th century from M.Fiedarouski’s collections (the 19th century) with a typical folk melody. Renaissance 1.
