In order to adjust to the requirements of the official political line of the nation and also without losing his individual artistic aspect Serocki searched for the inspiration in the folk music. He also referred to Polish folklore in the choral music. The choral music was not the main stream in the output of Serocki. his artistic choral output encompasses only 5 pieces.
