No information survives concerning the date or origins of this work. Vasily Prokunin was a student
of Tchaikovsky's at the Moscow Conservatory,
and it might be supposed that he asked his professor for help in editing and
reworking the songs.
The songs were published in two parts by Pyotr Jurgenson — Part 1 (songs
1–33) in 1872 ,
and part 2 (songs 34–65) in 1873 .
