Excitement abounds here. The driving rhythms of a vibrant folk dance are the mainstay of this piece that is written in the style of a Ukrainian-Carpathian folk song. The lyric transliteration makes singing the short Ukrainian text easy; most of the text consists of energetic nonsense syllables. The tenor part is optional.
