The edition is complete with an informative preface (in Hungarian, English, and German) and detailed Editorial Comments (in Hungarian and English). The Comments give an overview of the textual, folk-music, and compositional sources, and provide detailed information on the performance practice of Bartók's choral works.

The edition has been printed on high-quality and environmentally-friendly paper.
