I would say more like


(that's assuming that because you're in Birmingham, you don't pronounce the r. The last vowel is really slightly more like the a in cat, definately not like the a in wharf).

I always thought of the C sound as TS in English like in the word "co" pronounced more like "tso".


Intresting this version sounds like:

Can anyone recommend a recording of this by a Polish opera singer? The versions I have of this are beautiful, but they are sung by non-Polish sopranos, and you can hear they don't sing it correctly. Anyone who's learnt even basic Polish can notice the mispronunciation easily.

Can you confirm these are the right words (I've skipped repetition):

Mamo, nie płacz, nie
Niebios przeczysta Królowo
Ty zawsze wspieraj mnie
Zdrowaś Mario, łaskiś pełna

The accent (stressed syllable) is important and indicated below by the upper case:

Mamo, Mamo, nie placz,

Niebios Przeczysta Królowo,

Ty zawsze wspieraj mnie.

Zdrowaś Mario Laskiś Pelna

MAH-maw, MAH-maw NYEH* pwahch
NYEH-byawss psheh-CHISS-tah KROO-law-vaw
ZDRAW-vahsh MAH-ryaw WAHS-keesh PEHW-nah

* eh is used here to indicate the short e in English let, met, pet, etc.
