After nearly 70 years, in 2004, Musicological Section of the Polish Composers’ Union came back to that project and published the third issue, dedicated to two founders of Polish musicology: professors Zdzisław Jachimecki and Adolf Chybiński.

The Yearbook represent the whole spectrum of Polish scholars’ activity, including proceedings of musicological conferences organised by the Polish Composers’ Union. It contans papers in two languages: Polish and English.
