:: Recording Notes ::
0 - A Tushetian funeral song. It is not a popular song. It is begun by the soloist, the chorus replies in unison, and they simultaneously develop the theme of friends crying out at a funeral. Two voiced polyphony is a characteristic of Tushetian music. [Source: Tape notes]
0 - Male chorus from Tusheti (musically trained). [Source: Tape notes]
