Catalogue Number: 09Q057
Reference: HCD 32711-13
Description: The 225 songs making up Bicinia (1937-42), consisting of the composer's own melodies, Finnish, Hungarian and Mari folk songs and arrangements of religious and historical songs, were used as teaching tools for young choirs but, like Bartók, Kodály never stinted on quality, no matter who the intended performers. The 30 Tricinia (1954) use techniques ranging from Renaissance to late Romantic chromaticism. For hard-core Kodály collectors. 3 CDs. No texts.
