V Russian music will be heard in the last of the children's concerts to be presented Monday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock in the high school auditorium when the Grade Teachers' association will present tha Russian Singers in recital at the high. school auditorium. . Choral singing is Russia's particular contribution to the world and the folk songs of Russia have formed a treasury of melody from which the composers have drawn for their work. Almost every one of Tschaikowski's great symphonies is based on a simple folk song. . · ' · . . Among the best known Russian folk songs is the "Volga Boatman" which will be on the program to be sung Monday. This was originally sung by the "burlaks" or bargemen as they pull the barges up the river Volga. The singing comes softly at first increasing in volume and then fading to indicate the approach and departure of the bargemen. The chant of toiling masses has struck a responsive chord along the Mississippi, the Rhine and 1 the Seine. In the "Serbian Kolo" the men invite the women to dance with them in the streets in celebration of festivities. "Lord Have Mercy" by Lvovsky is sung once each year during the Easter service. The only words to the prayer are "Has- P-Dee-Pom-I-Lui," meaning "Lord Have Mercy" and these are repeated 49 times. "Gloria Patri" Is the beginning of the liturgical service of the Orthodox church. These songs will be included in the concert to be presented Monday. MRS.
