Bela Bartok - 27 Choruses for Womens or Childrens Voices Book 1


Don't Leave Me Here


Schola Hungarica ·
László Dobszay, conductor

I love this collection and think I'll post it book by book.  Unfortunately, I can't find an English translation online.  Bartok composed the music for folk poetry, the melodies are his.  He lamented that the difficulty of the texts for most non-Hungarians doomed the music to be relatively obscure, though he considered these some of his most important works. They sound quite rich for works that are all in two and three part textures.
