"A separate category of religious Lithuanian folklore works consists of religious calendar ceremonies and hymns which complement the old folk tradition of calendar holidays and ceremonies which are sometimes inseparably interwoven. I used two very ancient Lithuanian wedding songs containing lyrics full of diminutives. Wedding rituals are often mentioned in Christmas carols. The Lithuanian Christmas Eve reveals archaic features that permit individual interpretations of the ritual as a reawakening of the ancient Indo-European myth of the creation of the world." (Vytautas Miškinis) This piece has been composed for the international renowned Calmus Ensemble and it is suitable for ensembles and ambitious amateur choirs. You can find the song Vai zirge, zirgeli on the CD recording Folk Songs (Carus 83.034).
