FOUR RUSSIAN FOLK SONGS FOR MEN’S VOICES
As one of the “Mighty Five” group of Russian nationalist composers, Modést Musorgsky made his small contribution to the genre of folk-song arrangements by these four choruses for men’s voices. Taken together, they make an effective program set, but they can also be performed individually, each having a distinct mood, tempo, and character.
FS044(mc) MUSORGSKY ~ Rise, Rise, Lovely Red Sun (Tï vzoydi, vzoydi, solntse krasnoye) ttbb $1.95
“Rise, Rise Lovely Red Sun” is a spirited, muscular song associated with Stenka Razin, the notorious outlaw who led a band of marauding runaway serfs and deserters from the army in the seventeenth century.
FS045(mc) MUSORGSKY ~ Tell Me, Sweet Maiden (Skazhi, devitsa milaya) ttbb $1.95
“Tell Me, Sweet Maiden” is a lyrical dialogue between two lovers being coy with one another.
FS046(mc) MUSORGSKY ~ At My Father’s Gate (U vorot, vorot batiushkinïh) ttbb $2.45
“At My Father’s Gate” is a whimsical folk song best known for its use in the middle movement of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, where it is used as one of the leitmotivs to symbolize the resilience of the Russian nation with its deep folk roots. It was also arranged for mixed voices by Alexander Kastalsky (cat. no. FS 043).
FS047(mc) MUSORGSKY ~ O Freedom, My Freedom (Ah tï, volia, moya volia) ttbb $1.95
“O Freedom, My Freedom” is a lyrical song of longing, sung by a young man who is about to lose his freedom to marriage.
