Trepute Martela
The Flax-picking Song

This piece is based on an old Lithuanian folk song and, according to thecomposer, can hardly be translated. The text tells about a young girl plucking,stretching, and spinning flax while dancing at the same time.

The concept is that the singers themselves will play the instruments.Almost any percussion instruments can be used (wood blocks, temple blocks,claves, drums) but it is helpful to use instruments of different pitches and timbres.

The melodic instruments can also be chosen at will. I would suggestsoprano recorders (written over the tenor 1 and bass 2 parts) and melodicas (overthe tenor 2 and bass 1 parts), but other melodic instruments may be used. Theoriginal instruments included two recorders and two skuduciai (old Lithuanian folkinstruments).
