In the watchtower (Hejnal) of the Church of Santa Maria the watcher saw that the Tartars were attacking , warned the population playing the trumpet until an arrow in the neck killed him , so abruptly stopped playing and left the melody unfinished
This tune is called: Hejnal Mariacki and every day play play when the clock gives the hours


En la torre de vigilancia ( Hejnal ) de la Iglesia de Santa María estaba apostado un vigía que al ver que atacaban los tártaros avisó tocando la trompeta hasta que una flecha en el cuello lo mató y por lo que dejó de tocar bruscamente y dejó la melodía inacabada
Esta melodía se llama : Hejnal mariacki y todos los días se toca cuando da el reloj las horas
