“99 Georgian Songs” by Edisher Garakanidze

Subtitle: A collection of traditional folk, church and urban songs from Georgia

Recommended to me by: Jen Morris

This is primarily a book of sheet music, so I have not read it cover to cover, but it contains a lot of background material on Georgian music, as well as useful nuggets of information with each song and the occasional photograph. I have paged through it looking for songs I recognize, and listened to recordings of included songs to find new ones I like.

Each song is transcribed in 3-part harmony with transliterated Georgian words and English translations.

This is a wonderful source of information for those interested in Georgian singing and Georgian singers. Highly recommended.

Available from the Centre for Performance Research.
