Jānis Torgāns' research is dedicated to Jānis Cimze's A Garland of Songs (1872-1884)- one of the cornerstones of Latvian choral culture. Both the collection's links with German repertoire and singing traditions, and the fundemental innovation which Cimze brought into Latvian choral music are described. The author concludes that a Latvian style folk song arrangement is not only the fruit of labour of Jurjānu Andrejs or Emils Melngailis, as has up until now been emphasised in research literature; many particular roots can already be seen in the musical language of Cimze.
