Examining the studies done on Itrî, it is seen that these studies generally deal with the life of Itrî and discuss subjects such as his music love, being poet, compositions and poems. It is seen in the studies that his literal personality is included and his extant odes, quintets, sestes, kâr-i natik, compositions, semai and nakış (a form of song) semai, song, psalm, ballad, and dates written in ebced (mathematical value) are recorded.
However, his name and composed works were used as a stereotyped expression, poems were written for him, and his life became subjects of novels; since there is not a study collecting poems of Buhûrîzâde Mustafa Itrî Efendi who is known as professional singer of the Turkish classical music, poet, calligrapher, and composer, a need for dealing with the subject become clear. Therefore, we tried to gather poems of the Buhurîzâde Mustafa Itrî Efendi at this year declared as Itrî year by the UNESCO due to the 300th anniversary of his death.
