I have posted up a song by Konstanty Tyzenhaus (1785-1853) called "A Greeting Song for Tomasz Zan".  Tomasz Zan was a Polish poet and activist, and a co-founder of the Philomatic Association (1817), the Radiant Association (1820), and practitioner of the Filaret Association (1820-23) - all of them student organizations in Vilnius dedicated to Polish cultural and political activities. For his activity in those organizations he was exiled by the Russian authorities to Siberia (from 1824 to 1837). His poetry is mostly satirical, most known is the heroicomic 'Zgon tabakiery'.

Konstanty Tyzenhaus (1785-1853), ornithologist, artist, amateur musician. He was born in the small town of Zhaludok (nowin Shchuchyn district) and originated from a famous family, whose representatives held high positions in Rzeczpospolita (Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth). He was the author of numerous scientific works on ornithology, was interested in painting (and took lessons from Jan Rustem). In his estate in Pastave he established an ornithological museum, a painting gallery and a rich library. He enjoyed home music practice and, in 1842, he composed A Greeting Song for Tomasz Zan based on the verse by Gabrielle Gunther.
