Armenian Song Bouquets (Hai Yerk-Poonj): in Four Volumes

Original compositions and Others compiled by Grikor Mirzaian Suni

The years 1941, 1942, 1947, and 1947 saw the publication in Philadelphia of four collections of choral and vocal music, some with piano accompaniment or reduction, of Grikor Mirzaian Suni (1876-1939). Each collection is called “Armenian Song Bouquet”. These publications were sponsored by Suni’s students and family. Each volume has five works. The music scores are available here for your viewing and download.
