Clayton Parr : Supra! A Feast of Georgian Song

Traditional choirs, folk ensembles or any other group of singers will enjoy this collection of songs from the Republic of Georgia selected, notated and recorded by Clayton Parr and Carl Linich. Like folk songs from the rest of the world, Georgian songs are traditionally connected with events of daily life - work songs, laments, lullabies, songs about historical events or figures, ritual songs, healing songs, traveling songs, comic songs, and dance songs. Table songs are a particularly important genre, and the tradition of the supra (ritual banquet), with elaborate toasts and songs, occupies a central position in Georgian traditional culture. Traditionally, these songs are in three polyphonic voice parts, and the authors have provided many pedagogical tools for learning: recordings, pronunciation guides, lyric sheets, song backgrounds and recordings. Includes 18 songs, CD includes song demos, part-Learning tracks available online.

Various Arrangers : Georgian Sacred Chorales

Georgia has one of the world's most ancient polyphonic singing traditions. Polyphony refers to music where each vocal line is equally important, sharing the melody among them; (as opposed to homophony, in which melodic interest is concentrated in a single line). The singing tradition in the Caucasus is unique in its harmonic and -- especially in western Georgia -- its extreme polyphonic approach. Many songs have distinct archaic traits dating from pre-Christian times, and in most traditional music the intervals are flexible and do not coincide with tempered scale intervals (with the exception of the fifth). The harmonies are unlike anything in European music, with untempered intervals and striking harmonic convergences.

Songlist: Ats Qovliturt Aghivso, Da Vitartsa Meupisa, Ghmerti Upali, Jvarsa Shensa, Kriste Aghsdga, Motsikuli Kristes'agan, Movedit Da Vsvat, Romenlni Kerubinta, Shen Khar Venakhi, Tsmindao Ghmerto
