about

Heroic Songs of Knights and Gentry of Great Lithuania.

"The King died without any heirs. His friends set the King’s horse free, bearing only the King’s arms, to go and find the next king. The horse roamed around the country for two months until it bowed to an old man in a village.

That old man became King Vitaŭt, and long under his rule, the country thrived. Feeling his death approaching, the king ordered his musicians to play certain songs at his funeral, and after his death, whenever the country was menaced, he ordered them to play the same music again, and then he would rise to defend his nation.

To prove Vitaŭt’s words after his death, people started playing the music--but not the way he ordered. Vitaŭt came from the other world, blazed up and cursed the people. Since then there has been no rest in the country..."

A legend from the Viciebsk – Smaliensk borderline
P. Špilieŭski. Journeys around Paliessie and Other Belarusian Regions, 1852

Play the the long-lost tunes on the early instruments,
and sing the forgotten songs in the old language – and call for the ancient Heroes to wake and help us clean our Homeland!

All the songs presented here are based on historical sources, including the written records of the 14th–17th c. and printed music of the 16th–19th c. More detailed information can be found in the songs’ Lyrics and Comments addenda.

All the arrangements, musical adaptations of the historical texts and interpretations of the early and folk music are done by Stary Olsa.
