During their six years in existence, the vocal sextet released two albums, recorded music for two others, presented the world premieres of 28 compositions (including miniatures, larger a cappella forms, vocal–instrumental pieces, and works for voices with orchestra as well as nine different song cycles), performed in concert at festivals and at the invitation of leading cultural centres, including most of Poland’s philharmonics.
