Alexandr Matochkin - Alexandr Matochkin – Traditional Woeful Folksongs Of Russian Kin (Чёрная земля, 2014)
Russian traditional folk songs, Cossack romances, epics and carols in the performance of the famous Russian folklore researcher and epic narrator Alexander Matochkin.
The repertoire of the album turned out to be very interesting and unusual. Here, apart from purely traditional Russian songs, you can hear the author's song of Psoy Korolenko “Keep Your Mind in Hell and Do not Despair” supplemented by the words of Silouan Athos and lines of Russian spiritual Kant, as well as several French carols, as in copyright translation, and in its original form (in French).
Songs performed by the accordion. The record made, apparently, at home, can not boast of high idiophile standards, but it pleases with a warm and lively atmosphere. It was sung and recorded in February 2014 near St. Petersburg.

2 Between a donkey and an ox
3 It was on the bridge
4 A trouble was happened in the evening
5 Dobrynya says goodbye to his wife
6 The sun was shining over the forest
7 Sokolnik has beaten Dobrynya
8 My beautiful day will wake up
9 Entre le boeuf et l’âne gris
10 Her feet go bad from grief
11 Keep your mind in hell and despair not
