@gungasnake,
Another (gorgeous) item from the Piatnitsky choir:
Ой, со вечора, с полуночи

@gungasnake,

http://x-minus.org/track/25931/народные-русские-ой-со-вечора-с-полуночи.html

1.Ой, со вечора, с полуночи
Ой, со вечора, с полуночи
головка болела
головка болела

2.Ой да головушка моя болела
Ой да головушка моя болела
гулять захотела
гулять захотела

3.Я пойду ли молоденька
Я пойду ли молоденька
В зеленую рощу
В зеленую рощу

4.Я срублю ли молоденька
Я срублю ли молоденька
Кленовое древо
Кленовое древо

5.А я сделаю ль молоденька
А я сделаю ль молоденька
звончатые гусли
звончатые гусли

Ой, со вечора, с полуночи
Ой, со вечора, с полуночи
головка болела
головка болела

@panzade,
Thanks, that last one especially and I wish I knew what exactly was going on, almost looks like it's taking place in some sort of a fancy restaurant.

Stenka Razin

From beyond the wooded island
To the river wide and free
Proudly sailed the arrow-breasted
Ships of Cossack yeomanry.

On the first is Stenka Razin
With his princess by his side
Drunken holds in marriage revels
With his beauteous young bride.

From behind there comes a murmur
"He has left his sword to woo;
One short night and Stenka Razin
Has become a woman, too."

Stenka Razin hears the murmur
Of his discontented band
And his lovely Persian princess
He has circled with his hand.

His dark brows are drawn together
As the waves of anger rise;
And the blood comes rushing swiftly
To his piercing jet black eyes.

"I will give you all you ask for
Head and heart and life and hand."
And his voice rolls out like thunder
Out across the distant land.

Volga, Volga, Mother Volga
Wide and deep beneath the sun,
You have never such a present
From the Cossacks of the Don.

So that peace may reign forever
In this band so free and brave
Volga, Volga, Mother Volga
Make this lovely girl a grave.

Now, with one swift mighty motion
He has raised his bride on high
And has cast her where the waters
Of the Volga roll and sigh.

Now a silence like the grave
Sinks to all who stand and see
And the battle-hardened Cossacks
Sink to weep on bended knee.

"Dance, you fools, and let's be merry
What is this that's in your eyes?
Let us thunder out a chantey
To the place where beauty lies."

From beyond the wooded island
To the river wide and free
Proudly sailed the arrow-breasted
Ships of Cossack yeomanry.

@Pamela Rosa,
That's more like a drinking song, the song about Raizin's dream is much prettier.

@gungasnake,

"The Carnival Is Over" is a Russian folk song (1883) with lyrics written by Tom Springfield in 1965 for the Australian group The Seekers
The main tune is taken from a Russian folk song about Stenka Razin known as "Iz-za ostrova na strezhen" or "Volga, Volga mat' rodnaya".

@Pamela Rosa,
Thanks, hadn't heard of that one previously. Strange thing to be making a folk song from but it seems to work.
