Although this piece combines three distinct folk songs, it flows as one complete and connected musical thought. Students may be familiar with “Kalinka” and will surely be drawn into its characterstic accelerando. The piece, set in English, calls for a confident tenor section (although not tirelessly so). Young men take to the robust accents and dynamic contrasts that distinguish this genre.
