Auri “Kaķītei Bērns Nomira”

Skandinieki “Ziemassvētki Sabraukuši”
from Kalado (UPE www.upe.lv 2000) —Children have to run barefoot around the house 3 times - thus they welcome in Christmas
Werchowyna “Jak s'iew Jsos Chrystos”
from Pieśni Święte i grzeszne (Konador) —This begins a set of carols from "Western Ukraine" - put in quotation marks because the Lemko Ukrainian folks who made this recording come from southwestern Poland...
Orkiestra Św. Mikołaja “Kolęda"W nedlu rano"”
from Huculskie Muzyki ((self produced0 2005) —This Kolenda (Christmas Carol) comes from the Hutsul dialect Ukrainians living in the Carpathian mountains north of Romania. The carol has been set to a syncopated 8, and the piece ends in a "Hutsulka" - a fast dance in even time.
